About Ellie


I am Ellie Downie, younger but taller sister to Becky Downie. I am also a Team GB Elite Artistic Gymnast and iím 20 yrs old.

I compete four pieces of apparatus, Bars, Beam, Floor and Vault of which floor & vault are my favourite & speciality pieces, tho I am also a strong All Around performer.

As a junior gymnast I competed at the European Youth Olympic festival where I became EYOF Vault Champion I repeated this success at the Junior European Championships in 2014 & Also represented GB at The Youth Olympic Games in Nanning China the same year returning with Four medals.

2015 was the year i turned Senior and i had an Amazing year. I gained GB's first ever AA podium finish at a major Championships (Europeans) which also resulted in me winning BBC Young Sports Personality Of The Year !!!

Since that point I can now say I've proudly represented GB at five European championships, three World championships and one Olympic games.

Outside the gym I have a huge interest in Make up and would potentially love to one day become a Make up artist. I also like to keep myself busy† and make sure outside the gym I'm having fun and spending time with the people I love most.
