Tumble sales! Olympic star Nile Wilson turns shopping centre into gymnastics camp

Unsuspecting shoppers at Westfield London were stunned to see ex-Olympic gymnast, Nile Wilson turn the shopping centre into his very own gym on Thursday. Nile and his team of gymnasts stunned crowds by showing off their world-class backflips, group tumbles, and handstands on concourses and down escalators. They also performed stunts such as the Human Bowling Ball, an obstacle course, and air track tricks in Westfield London's Atrium. The athlete, who won an Olympic bronze medal in the men's horizontal bar at the 2016 Summer Olympics, wasn’t just there to show off his skills though. As part of Try Something New Day, he encouraged shoppers to try their hand at stunts they didn’t know they were capable of even assisting members of the public with landing backflips and other tricks for the first time.
