Becky has been the British senior women’s all-around champion two times and is particularly strong on beam and bars. She competed in the Beijing Olympic Games and finished in a British record 12th place in the all-around. In 2013 she was crowned English and British bars champion and made both the European and World bars finals. In 2014 Becky took beam gold and two silvers at the British Championships on the bars in the all-around competition and also the European bars title.

This year, in preparation for Rio, Becky has continued her good form, winning beam gold and bars silver at the British Championships, before helping the team win silver and becoming bars champion at the European Championships.
