Profile

Age: 14

Eve started artistic gymnastics at 5 years old, but when her family moved to Kent from London when she was 7 years old, her new coach suggested she try City of Canterbury Rhythmic Gymnastics Club because of her flexibility and
build.

Eve says: “I love the sport so much because it combines so many different elements – gymnastics, dance, flexibility, strength and hand-eye coordination – which together make it a beautiful sport to watch and participate in. I train 25 hours a week and extra during holidays and squad camps but I don’t mind because I know the more I practice, the stronger I will get and the better chance I will have for success.”
