Despite being hampered by an ankle injury, Tyson Bull (Gymnastics) produced a gutsy performance to win silver on Horizontal Bar at his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham. Initially 13th in qualifying, teammate Clay Mason Stephens (8th) sacrificed his own spot in the final to allow Tyson to compete. He also reached the final of the parallel bars and was part of the men’s team that finished 4th. Tyson began in gymnastics when he was five to try to get a good foundation for all sports but decided to stick with gym. He went to the Commonwealth Youth Games on the Isle of Man in 2011 where he won silver on Rings and was 5th on Horizontal Bar. Bull attended the University of Illinois, where he mixed gymnastics and study in kinesiology. He attended the 2018 and 2019 World Championships, finishing 7th on Horizontal Bar in 2019 which earned him a quota spot for the 2020 Olympics. After returning to Australia in 2020 to train at the Gymnastics Australia National Training Centre, he was Australia’s only male artistic gymnast at the Tokyo Olympics where he finished 5th on Horizontal Bar, the first Australian male artistic gymnast to make an Olympic men’s apparatus final. He then had an extended break – relocating from Canberra to Melbourne and commencing a master’s degree in physiotherapy at Swinburne University of Technology – before claiming the Horizontal Bar title at the 2022 Australian Nationals and was 4th in Parallel Bars.
