The 2019 champion has also been given an outside chance to win golf in the pommel horse after his Olympic-winning teammate Max Whitlock withdrew.

Fraser, who lives just 30 minutes from where he will be competing for the next few weeks, recently spoke to Sportsmail about his excitement for the upcoming multisport event.

“There is no added pressure, only added pleasure. I’m sure if you were to ask someone where they would like to compete, they would say their hometown.

“It will be a proud moment for me and everyone who has been part of the journey to get me to where I am today. I will give everything and see what I can achieve.”
