Sport: Gymnastics

Grace was born and raised on the Isle of Man and that is where her gymnastics journey began. At 3 years old, she went to baby gymnastics classes and never looked back from there. Grace worked her way up through the levels, competing in multiple national and international competitions.

Grace represented the Isle of Man at 4 Island Games, with Bermuda 2013 being a key highlight as she came away with a total of 10 medals, 5 of them gold. Grace also competed in 5 Northern European Championships, making a total of 4 individual finals.

2014 was the biggest year of her career after she made the decision to defer a year before going to University, becoming a full-time gymnast and focusing completely on training for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. At the Games, Grace qualified for the All-Around final, becoming the first Manx female gymnast to reach a final at the Commonwealth Games.

Alongside her gymnastics, Grace has always focused on her education. Following Glasgow 2014, she went to Loughborough University, where she graduated with a First Class degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Grace is currently completing a Masters degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology.

Having recently retired from competitive gymnastics, Grace is enjoy supporting and inspiring the next generation of upcoming athletes.
