Reason for taking up the sport
"Because I am a twin I am naturally quite competitive. My brother and I were always quite full of energy so gymnastics was a good way to keep us both busy and out of trouble." (tresamagazine.com, 04 Sep 2018)

She won a total of five medals at the 2018 European Junior Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, to become the most decorated British female gymnast in the history of the tournament. Her two silver medals and three bronze medals surpassed Ellie Downie, Alice Kinsella and Amy Tinkler, who all claimed a total of three medals.

Additional information
General
MENTOR
She participates in 'Get Set to Find Your Extraordinary', a partnership between the British Olympic Association and the University of Hull in England that offers advice and insights from British athletes to encourage youths age 11-18 to be resilient and discover their own strengths. "If you try one thing and it doesn't work out, try something different. Everyone has their own path to finding their extraordinary at their own pace so stay patient. One day you will find that thing that inspires you and that makes you extraordinary." (Instagram athlete profile, 05 May 2021; getsethull.com, 26 Jun 2021)

TV APPEARANCE
She was one of the featured athletes on the documentary series 'Gym Stars', aired on British children's TV channel CBBC. The series followed several promising young gymnasts as they prepared for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. She believes her experience on the show has helped her develop as an athlete. "The first time I had to do interviews and be on camera for Gym Stars, I felt so uncomfortable. It was not natural at all. I hated watching back the episodes, and now it feels so normal and natural. I definitely think it's helped a lot with confidence and talking to people. It's been a really good experience." (sport.yahoo.com, 17 Jun 2021)
