He suffered a shoulder injury prior to the 2017 British Championships in Liverpool that forced him to reduce the number of apparatus he competed on at the event. Several weeks later he was found to have torn cartilage and dislocated his shoulder when sustaining the initial injury, but it had popped back in immediately. (YouTube channel, 31 Jul 2017)

He fractured his wrist in 2017. (YouTube channel, 31 Jul 2017)

Start sporting career

He first tried gymnastics at age three, and two years later he was asked to join the development squad at the South Essex Gymnastics Club in England. (echo-news.co.uk, 19 Mar 2018; brinnbevan.com, 01 Jul 2015)

Reason for taking up the sport

"At first I got involved in sport because, like most athletes, I was a very hyperactive child. My parents found it very hard to keep me under control at times. The main thing that kept me in sport was watching the Olympics on television and from then I decided that I wanted to be an Olympic athlete. It just happened that it was gymnastics, but I guess I also chose the sport because I thought it would be cool to be able to backflip." (bbc.co.uk, 04 Dec 2015)

Ambitions

To compete at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. (exquisiteconcierge.co.uk, 01 Jul 2017)

"Tough times don't last. Tough people do." (YouTube channel, 31 Jul 2017)

PROMISE TO FATHER
In 2009 his father passed away after battling cancer for two years. Bevan promised him that he would pursue a place at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and eventually win an Olympic medal. "It really affected me as my head wasn't in the right place to focus in the gym. It took two more years before I was able to get back in gear and realise my dream again."
