BRINN BEVAN has returned to training after his broken leg – and set his sights on booking a spot at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

The 18-year-old suffered a break of the tibia and fibula in his left leg a freak accident in his warm up for the British Teams Championships in November and was sidelined after undergoing surgery.

It was a devastating  blow for the Great Britain first year senior after the high of winning a team silver at the World Championships in October and hit his chances of competing at Brazil.

So it has been great to see the popular South Essex star back in training in videos on social media in recent weeks.

His coach Scott Hann says Brinn will now compete with limited routines at the English Championships on March 19 and his training is now at about 80 per cent of where it was before the injury.

After getting the green light from his specialist to return to training, Brinn said on his YouTube channel: “This part of the journey is going to be a lot harder than the rest of it.

“All I have got to do is concentrate on on my rehab programme and building the strength back in my leg.”
