Cham told "The PHM Scholarship means a lot because I’m not funded currently and have to coach to make money. 

"I’m proud to have been selected for this award and I am very grateful that I am being supported in my journey.

"In the next year I would love to be competing fully fit against the top gymnasts in Great Britain and Birmingham 2022 is 100% my next big aim."

Cham also reflected on his time Down Under, adding: "My experience in Gold Coast was amazing.

"It was my first major competition and it gave me an insight of what it is like to compete and train at the top level.
