How I Started
I first tried Gymnastics at the age of 12. This was after my mum saw an advert for our local gym on Facebook and asked if I was interested in attending since I was such an energetic child. After attending for a while, I was approached by one of the coaches who asked if they could record some of my skills to show to a GBR tumbling coach. I was then invited by my current coach; Josh Hunter to trial a week later. I found out I had made the tumbling squad and thus began my journey through the world of tumbling.
My Greatest Achievement
My greatest achievement is competing in the 2021 World Age Group Championships. It was a really unique feeling, competing at such a high level was energising and nerve-racking all at the same time! I remember stepping out in front of everyone, ready to compete, with all these thoughts running through my head, but when the time came, I locked in and gave it my all. I had worked so hard to get to this point, I wasn’t going out without every single ounce of effort I had in me being displayed in my performance!
My Greatest Challenge
The greatest challenge I have faced in my career was undoubtedly the global pandemic. At the time, I wasn’t in the GBR Tumbling squad, which meant that I was not legally allowed to train under the pandemic procedures at the time. This was especially gutting as I saw my friends returning to the gym and getting workouts in throughout lockdown whereas I was stuck at home without the tools to do so. In the end, this only drove me when I got back into the gym to train even harder than I ever had before.
My favourite way to spend my free time is with friends exploring new places, going out for food and just enjoying their company as being a full-time athlete takes away a lot of my free time as I am training, preparing meals or recovering! I also love coaching gymnastics, this is because with the support of my own coaches, I got to where I am today, and I know that if I provide the same sort of support to my students, they will one day take their passion as far as I have.
My Future goals
My future goals are not just to make it to Senior World Championships, but also to win at the Senior World Championships. I would also like to elevate Tumbling to new heights and see it become an Olympic discipline on the world stage.
