Competing for my club at British Championships in Liverpool and winning European Championship silver also stand out for me. I want to thank all the people who have supported me, my coach Claire and her family, my family and all the support team at British Gymnastics.
I hope to go into coaching in the future and will definitely stay in contact with all my amazing teammates who have been like an extended family. Finally, I want to say a huge thank you to all the incredible gymnastics fans who have supported me throughout my career – you’ve been amazing!”
