Ellie Downie made her Olympic debut at Rio 2016, finishing 13th in the all-around final after playing a key part in the team event as Team GB's women recorded a fifth-place finish.
Younger sister of fellow Olympian Becky, Downie won a gold on the vault and a team silver at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Utrecht in 2013 and three bronzes and a silver at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing a year later.
In 2015, she made history by becoming the first female gymnast ever to win an individual all-around medal for Great Britain at the European Championships with bronze, winning World Championship team bronze in the same year.
Downie excelled at the 2016 European Championships in Berlin taking three silvers in vault, floor and the team event, and at the 2017 edition, became the first British gymnast to win the all-round title at a major international competition, also winning silver medals in vault and floor and a bronze on the bars.
