Claudia is a strong all-around gymnast who excels on floor and vault. In 2014 Claudia made history winning four gold medals for Team England at the Commonwealth games including the all-around title. Earlier that year she helped the British team win the silver medal at the European Championships as well as making both the floor and vault finals. At the 2014 World Championships Claudia placed 10th all-around and made the floor and vault finals. In 2015, she won floor silver at the European Championships, before helping the team take bronze at the 2015 World Championships. 2016 was also one of success for Claudia. At the British Championships she won a brilliant all-around gold as well as vault, beam and floor silver, and then helped the team win silver at the European Championships in Bern. After taking time out following the 2016 Rio Olympics to take part in the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing programme, she returned to competition at the 2017 British Championships where she showcased her new floor routine, taking silver in the process. And it was that floor routine she performed expertly at the 2017 World Championships in Montreal, Canada, to take bronze and claiming her first individual World medal.
