Amy Tinkler was born on October 27, 1999 in County Durham, England, UK. Her strongest event is floor exercise. She was crowned as the English champion last month.

Tinkler competed at last year's Junior European championships where she won silver on floor exercise and with her team, and a bronze on vault. She was also a part of the silver medal winning team at 2013 European Youth Olympic Festival.

On vault, she does a double twisting Yurchenko, nice height and form. I won't be surprised if she trained an Amanar.

On bars, she swings smoothly and does her dismount beautifully, but suffers from excessive form break and leg separation.

She does a maloney (D) as transition, Tkatchev (D) as release and a full twisting double back tuck (D) as dismount.


On beam, she is easy on the eyes. She does a gainer layout step out (C) to a layout step out (C), worth 0.1 connection bonus, a side aerial (D) to wolf jump (A), worth 0.1 connection bonus, double turn with leg below horizontal (D), switch leap with half turn (D), back tuck (C), front aerial (D) to switch leap (C) to leap (A), worth 0.1 connection bonus.

She ends her routine a difficult triple full dismount (F).

Execution wise, it will be better if she cleaned up her form on her acro elements.

She is a dynamic floor worker. She opens up with an H rated full twisting double layout and does an F rated double straight layout as her second pass.

Her choreography is average.

Bottom of line: Her type of gymnastics is similar to her compatriot Claudia Fragapane's but with way cleaner form and execution. I can also see her as Great Britain's top AAer in this quad.

On a World stage, she has potential and capability of making the top placements but first she needs to upgrade and work on her bars and beam execution.
