General

In November 2018 she released a book entitled 'The Small Wonder' that documents her career. (thegymter.net, 05 Nov 2018; Twitter profile, 03 Nov 2018)

PRODUNOVA
On her way to winning bronze on vault at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, she became only the fifth female athlete to have landed the 'Produnova'. The move, which is nicknamed the 'Vault of Death', involves completing two somersaults before landing on the feet safely. "There can be death if you land on the neck, there's death if you go down headlong. It is risky, I know. But to win something, I always knew I had to take a risk. I'd seen boys do it, so why not? It's tough because when you land after two aerial somersaults, the weight that comes on the leg is double - if I'm 45kg, the legs have to take 80-90kg."
