Joe Fraser – three times B2022 Commonwealth Games Gold medallist and former Sandwell Academy student

Gymnast Joe’s performance at the B2022 Commonwealth Games was nothing short of incredible.

Kicking off the competition with a men’s team Gold, Joe added to his haul with a Gold on the pommel horse. He then became the first ever English man to win a Commonwealth Gold medal on the parallel bars.

And all of this while recovering from a foot injury and a burst appendix. The whole of Sandwell was cheering him on.

Joe’s former school Sandwell Academy are also extremely proud of him – with one of their houses named Fraser in his honour.

Joe, you’re an incredible athlete and an inspiration. Bostin!
