Olympic Bronze medallist

About Amy

Amy is a 19 year old British Gymnast who trains at South Essex Gymnastics Club. Amy is a member of the Great Britain National Squad and a BRONZE MEDALLIST FROM THE RIO 2016 OLYMPIC GAMES!

In January 2013 Amy represented Great Britain at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival. Amy returned from Sydney crowned as the Youth Olympic Floor Champion as well as winning Silver in the vault and overall team Silver. Amy then represented GB in July at the European Youth Olympic Festival – returning with a historic team Silver medal!

Amy was part of the successful squad that travelled to Bulgaria in June 2014 for the European Championships. The junior team secured a fantastic Silver medal behind Russia and ahead of Romania in 3rd place. Individually Amy won a Bronze medal on the vault and a Silver on floor in the apparatus finals. Amy then made history with her GB team mates in October 2015 at the World Championships taking their first ever Bronze medal behind America and China!

At the 2016 British Champinships, Amy retained her floor title by claiming gold for the second year in a row. She was named as the youngest member of Team GB for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. In Rio, Amy produced a stunning floor routine to claim an Olympic Bronze Medal. Amy became the first British gymnast to medal in the Floor event and she joins Beth Tweddle as the only British female gymnast to win an individual medal at an Olympic Games.

Finally, at the 2017 World Championships in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Amy performed very well to finish an all-around 17th. Amy is currently tending to an ankle injury. Unfortunately, this kept Amy from competing at the Commonwealth Games, but she has vowed to come back stronger.

Amy announced her retirement from Gymnastics in January 2020 and is currently trying to inspire the next generation. Amy has been announced as a Made by Sport Ambassador for 2020 who are using sport to transform lives for young people in the UK.
