"It’s been a hard decision to make; gymnastics has been and always will be a massive part of my life."
"Following the Olympics I’ve had a lot of projects on and recently I’ve had a bit more time to get back into the gym and decide whether I could put 100% into it. I know now deep down I can’t commit to the hours and training to remain at the very top."
"I’m going to miss being part of the team, my teammates, my personal coach Amanda Reddin, the buzz of the competition and achieving your dreams."
"I don’t think my achievements will ever really sink in but when I do look back I can be very proud of what I’ve done and how I’ve done it."
"The London 2012 Olympics is where I achieved my lifelong dream and now I hope I can inspire the next generation of youngsters by providing the opportunity for them to try gymnastics. I’m honoured that Chobham Academy has chosen to support my academy and it’s very special for me to be able to do this on the Olympic site. The school opens this September and my academy will be starting in mid-October. It will be open to anyone in the local area that wants to come along.
"I want to give every child an opportunity to try gymnastics. I had to try a lot of sports before I found gymnastics, this way children can have a go; they might love it, they might hate it but at least we’ve given them the opportunity to try it."
