British Olympian Max Whitlock led South Essex to a fourth consecutive team title at the 2013 British Men's Team Championships, held Saturday in Leicester.

Whitlock, Reiss Beckford, Anthony Wise and junior stars Jay Thompson and Brinn Bevan scored 255.950 to bring another victory for South Essex, earning the Adams Shield as the best British club.

Leeds took second (250.850) ahead of the City of Birmingham (239.200) and the University of Loughborough (232.500).

Whitlock, who tied Mexico's Daniel Corral for the silver medal on pommel horse at last month's world championships in Antwerp, said he did simple routines in Leicester to conclude his successful season. Whitlock, who was fourth all-around in Antwerp, also finished second all-around and tied for first on floor at the European championships in April.

"I've got a couple of weeks before I go on holiday and then after that it's all about working on my routines for next year," said Whitlock, the current British champion.

2014 features several key events for the British men, including the European championships, Commonwealth Games and world championships.

"My main focus is to get an all-around spot, and also a spot on the floor and pommel [for the team]," Whitlock told his his hometown newspaper.

Whitlock, 20, was a double bronze medalist at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, taking third with the British team and on pommel horse. He said everything is building toward 2016.

"Hopefully I can get some new moves and start working on them as soon as possible," he said. "It all comes down to preparation for Rio in 2016, really." "Everything from now on is leading up to Rio 2016."

In the junior team competition, the City of Birmingham won the Williams Trophy by a heavy margin, 295.950-280.350 over Leeds. Huntingdon won the bronze (274.650).
