BBC Points West meets Kristof Willerton, a biochemistry student turned world champion tumbler.
Tumbling is a gymnastic discipline that involves sprinting and somersaulting down a track.
Gloucester's Willerton, 20, has been competing in the sport since he was 10 years old and is a four-time national champion.
Last month, the Oxford student became the first British man to claim tumbling gold at the trampoline gymnastics world championships in Sofia.
