The Whiteley gymnast won four gold medals in the prestigious international event, where gymnasts from her club Dynamo also put in some fantastic displays.


Simm was left out of the Great Britain squad for the Rio 2016 Olympics. But she has since increased her difficulty levels and was rewarded with four titles at the Rushmoor Academy.



The Rosebowl is an annual competition allowing clubs, regions and national teams to compete against each other .A total of 20 teams lined up in various categories throughout the day. Dynamo head of performance Kerri Upton was delighted to see Simm bounce back well after the disappointment of not making the team for Rio. Upton was also pleased to see the rest of the Dynamo squad impress in such a high-quality competition.


Simm put in a fantastic performance to take the individual all-around Rosebowl title with a score of 54.30.

She also received the Rosebowl for the highest score on any one apparatus, her vault score of 14.15.

Simm’s performance qualified her through to all four apparatus finals the following day.

And some spectacular routines saw her collect two more golds on vault and bars.
