Becky is one half of the Downie duo that has taken the gymnastics world by storm. Her and younger sister Ellie are both Lottery funded athletes competing nationally and internationally as part of the Lottery-funded British Gymnastics squad.

Growing up in Nottingham, Becky started gymnastics with a school friend aged seven after first giving dancing a go but deciding it wasn’t for her. She quickly began taking the sport seriously, moving from her local club to Nottingham Gym Academy and winning her first national title aged 12.

Her career highlights include winning double Commonwealth Gold at Glasgow 2014, competing in the Olympics in Beijing and becoming 2014 European bar champion. And of course cheering on sister Ellie!
