Additional information

General
NEW GENERATION
In October 2016 he launched 'Daniel Purvis Gymnastics' with the local council in Sefton, England, to promote the sport to children throughout the area. He also took a role coaching the youngsters. "Having grown up and trained in Sefton, I know how much talent there is in the local communities here and I believe gymnastics will thrive as a sport with the right infrastructure. Coaching a group of youngsters aged five to 11 will be a vastly different challenge to anything I have faced before but I am confident my experience will stand me in good stead." He also runs the initiative in Liverpool, England. (danpurvisgymnastics.co.uk, 01 Sep 2017; southportvisiter.co.uk, 03 Oct 2016)

SCOTTISH TIES
As the son of a Scottish mother and an English father, he enjoys spending time with his Scottish relatives when they attend competitions. They tease him because he trains in England but competes for Great Britain or Scotland, depending on the competition. "I'm always trying to explain the different elements of gymnastics to them but they normally just end up asking about what leotard I'm going to be wearing and teasing me for that." (heraldscotland.com, 21 May 2016)
