February 16, 2022

Flynn comes from Christchurch and joined the sport of competitive Trampolining in 2017 as an 8 year old, and quickly discovered his love of jumping, performing skills and competing

He was a committed athlete and enjoyed progressing quickly from local age level competitions in New Zealand, to being selected at age 9 to represent New Zealand at the 2018 Australian Gymnastics competition

His efforts were also profiled that year in local newspapers, and on NZ children’s television programme “What Now” in July this year.

He has his eye set firmly on the LA2028 Olympics.

In his spare time Flynn loves outdoor sports especially mountain biking and scootering. He is also a saxophonist in the school jazz band, is an avid reader, and swimming and playing video games.

Flynn currently trains 10 hours a week at Olympia Gymnastics in Christchurch under 2021 NZ Olympic Coach Alexander Nilov.
