Additional information

General
NATIONAL FIRST
After claiming a total of five medals at the 2018 European Junior Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, she became the most decorated British junior female gymnast in the history of the championships. Her two silver and three bronze medals surpassed Ellie Downie, Alice Kinsella and Amy Tinkler who all claimed a total of three medals. (SportsDesk Online, 10 Sep 2018; british-gymnastics.org, 05 Aug 2018)

GYM STAR
She has appeared on the BBC show 'Gym Star' that tracks gymnasts through their training and competitions. "It was fun to film for Gym Stars, at first I felt a bit uncomfortable in front of the cameras but I soon got used to it and now we pretty much forget they are there. I didn't realise how many people would watch the show but the amount of lovely messages from Gym Stars viewers I receive is such an overwhelming feeling." (tresamagazine.com, 04 Sep 2018)
