She represented Great Britain at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics. A prodigious junior, Downie, at the age of 15, became the first female gymnast ever to win an individual all-around medal for Great Britain at the European Championships, with a bronze at the 2015 Championships in Montpelier, France later in the same year, Downie was part of the Great Britain women's team that won her country's first ever global team medal, a bronze, at the 2015 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

There's no doubt Downie is giving her all after nearly suffering a neck injury during her most recent floor routine during the gymnastics session on Sunday evening in Rio. The teenager was cleared of any serious damage and went onto to complete the vault element of her event. The brave gymnasts' efforts helped Team GB secure third place overall which sees them through to Tuesdays final.
