Heading into the competit-ion on the back of impressively winning gold at the first qualifying event in Telford

last month, Goodall – who is a third year chiropractic Masters student – found himself in second place with 33.8 points after the first round of routines.

He then clinched gold with a triple-twisting double somersault, taking his tally to 67.3 to claim victory by 0.3.

Goodall’s overall mark was also a qualifying score for the World Championships, boosting his hopes of making the Great Britain team for November’s event in Tokyo.
