Profile

Amy is particularly impressive on the floor where she won silver at the 2014 Junior European Championships and gold at the 2015 British Championships. Although she excels on the floor she is a strong all-around gymnast known for her power and cool head in competition. This was evident at the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow where she helped Team GB win team bronze. At the 2016 British Championships, Amy retained her floor title by claiming gold for the second year in a row. Named as the youngest member of Team GB for the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Amy produced a stunning floor routine to claim bronze, to become the first British gymnast to medal in the event. She joins Beth Tweddle as the only British female gymnast to win an individual medal at an Olympic Games. At the 2017 World Championships in Montreal, Canada, Amy performed consistently well to finish all-around 17th.
