Two Silvers for Becky at the European Championships 2015
21st April 2015
The first day of apparatus finals saw Becky Downie
take the silver medal on bars. The reigning champion executed skills with grace but had to fight for the final pirouette then performed her brilliantly executed dismount to score a huge 15.233 with first place Darla Spiridonova of Russia scoring 15.466. Competing alongside Becky was younger sister Ellie Downie
who finished 4th just 0.1 behind 3rd place.
Also on day 1, meant vault finals for Ellie. She had a superb first vault with her second one being accurate but just a small hop on landing to score an average of 14.516 for 5th place.
