SCOTT Hann wants Brinn Bevan’s displays at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships to inspire him to even greater glory.

Bevan - who is based in Thundersley - finished 18th in yesterday’s all-around final in Doha.

And his coach Hann now wants the former Deanes School pupil to build on his performances.

“I’m really happy with Brinn and you have to remember that was his first championships on the world stage since the Rio Olympics in 2016,” said Hann.

“Coming in from being the reserve like he did brings its own kind of pressure but he should take a lot of confidence from what he’s done and now he should be aiming to be part of the process moving forward.”

Bevan scored a total of 79.564 but was frustrated by some errors he made in his routines.

“I was on the phone to Brinn shortly after the final and he was frustrated by the mistakes he made but that’s only normal for any elite athlete,” said Hann.

“But I also said to him he should be full of confidence moving forward now and he agreed.

“If you add up all the scores then Brinn is right up there with the very best.

“He’s off to Japan for a World Cup soon and we will be looking to build on his displays, which were great on his first competition back.”

Bevan’s team-mate at the South Essex Gymnastics Club, Max Whitlock, will now take centre stage having qualified in first place for tomorrow’s pommel horse final.

And Hann has been delighted with Whitlock’s displays so far.

“Max had been phenomenal in training and he’s looked very calm so far,” said Hann.

“He’s the top qualifier and has done really well but as we know anything can happen in a final.”

Hann will again be watching the action from back home in Basildon.

And he has found not being at the competition difficult.

“I have found it quite hard having to watch on television if I’m honest,” said Hann.

“When you’re there you can shout and help a bit more.

“When I spoke to Brinn he said he wished I was there because I would’ve settled him down more but I actually want them to have that robustness about them.

“It’s them competing not me so it could make them stronger.

“I’ve stayed at home due to family commitments but I’m ready to commit again next year.”

Whitlock is reigning World and Olympic champion on the pommel horse.

And he has also been pleased by his performances in Doha so far.

“I’ve proved a lot to myself this week that what I’ve been doing is the right thing, even if it’s meant taking the risks now in order to look at the bigger picture,” said Whitlock.

“It isn’t easy going from one competition to another making mistakes. But I’ve said I want to replicate the cycle from London to Rio and now I’m in the position where I can start to consolidate.”
