Jake Jarman selected for Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Jake Jarman Selected for Paris 2024

Written by Retirement Line

The Retirement Line team is once again proud of Peterborough-based Jake Jarman, a star of British Gymnastics, who has today been named as a member of Team GB for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The announcement from Team GB confirms that Jake will be one of ten artistic gymnasts competing. Joining Jake in the men’s line up are previous Olympians Max Whitlock OBE and Joe Fraser, and Jake’s fellow Olympics debutants Harry Hepworth and Luke Whitehouse. The women’s team is made up of Alice Kinsella, Becky Downie MBE, Georgia-Mae Fenton, Ruby Evans and Abi Martin.

Jake’s father Tony Jarman, a member of Retirement Line’s Annuity Guidance Team, says: “I am so thrilled with today’s news, although I had already booked my tickets, flight and accommodation for Paris!”

Tony’s confidence in his son was well founded, as Jake has had a superb start to 2024. In April he won the gold medal for the vault at the 2024 European Men’s Gymnastics Championships in Rimini, Italy. This followed vault gold medals at the 2022 European Championships and the 2023 World Championships.

Jake also narrowly missed out on a medal in the all-round event, finishing fourth, and came sixth in the floor final. The icing on the cake for Jake was a silver medal with his fellow GB gymnasts in the team event. Teammate Luke Whitehouse won gold in the floor title. 

Speaking just after picking up his medals he said: "I felt super-relaxed and I'm really happy with how I'm progressing as a whole. To have the World and European titles gives me so much confidence. It validates what I'm doing in training and gives me more motivation and momentum hopefully towards the Olympics, if selected." 

Earlier this year, Jake also picked up gold medals in the floor, vault and high bar competitions at the 2024 British Gymnastics Championships. He also took home silver medals in both the all-round and pommel horse finals.
