As the British men's team prepares for the upcoming world championships in Montreal, coach Scott Hann told IG that the British national team's recent achievements result from a confident mental perspective.

"British gymnasts start their journeys now with a mindset of performance and success, rather than participation and development," Hann said.

Hann is the personal coach of 2016 Olympic double gold medalist Max Whitlock, who was one of five British male gymnasts nominated for worlds. Whitlock is making his return to competition after taking a post-Olympic break this spring.

The other British gymnasts slated for Worlds are 2016 Olympic high bar bronze medalist Nile Wilson, 2017 European rings silver medalist Courtney Tulloch, 2017 European all-around bronze medalist James Hall, 2017 British all-around champion Joe Fraser and 2012 Olympic team bronze medalist Dan Purvis.
