General
POST RIO LIFE
Her bronze medal win at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro caused certain aspects of her life to change. "I guess my life changed massively after winning my medal, in more ways than I expected. The biggest life change was moving four hours away from home to train with Scott Hann [Max Whitlock's coach] at South Essex, although it wasn't planned it was the best change I've ever made. I also get recognised quite a lot which is pretty cool, it's nice to walk down the street and people know you, and to hear that you have had an impact on them and inspired them."
