Daniel made his debut for Team Scotland at the 2004 Commonwealth Youth Games, winning bronze in the Team event.
After representing Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in 2006, where the Men's Gymnastics team recorded a 7th place finish, Daniel was part of the Scottish team which took a historic silver medal at Glasgow 2014 - Scotland's first ever medal in the Team competition. He went on to win silver in the Individual All-Around and gold on Pommel Horse to become Scotland's most successful gymnast in Commonwealth Games history.
He represented Great Britain at the 2008Â Olympic Games, qualifying for the Individual All-Around final, in the same year that he won four gold medals at the European Junior Championships. He won World Championship silver in 2009, the first British gymnast ever to win a medal in the Individual All-Around. He is also a seven-time European Championship medallist, including gold on Pommel Horse in both 2010 and 2013.
