Ellie Downie selected for Stuttgart World Cup

Categories // Women's artistic

Ellie had some good news this week as she has been selected to compete in the Stuttgart World Cup on March 19th.

She will compete alongside German legend Elisabeth Seitz, her teammate Tabea Alt Elisa Meneghini of ItalyIsabela Onyshko of Canada, Seda Tutkhalyan of Russia, 2012 Olympian Celine van Gerner of the Netherlands, Xie Yufen the 17-year-old from China. Completing the line up is Nia Dennis of the United States in what will be her long-anticipated senior international debut.


The Gymternet said,

"Nia Dennis' biggest competition will be Downie, the British superstar also in her second year of competition who helped her team to an historic bronze medal at the 2015 World Championships. Due to a fall on bars in qualifications, Downie did not advance to the all-around final in Glasgow, but is easily the country’s strongest all-around competitor and has the greatest potential to upset Dennis in Stuttgart."

The Stuttgart World Cup will be held at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Germany on March 19.
