British gymnast Becky Downie announced on her Instagram that she is eyeing the next Olympic Games which will be held in Tokyo in 2020.

"It's an art to play badly" wrote Downie.

"I feel like this quote perfectly describes my life at times. Sometimes things go your way and sometimes they don't but I am so grateful I found my passion and have been able to turn it into my career."

"If you have a dream, never give it up just because someone else think you should. If you believe you can do it that's what matters the most. The journey is as important as the destination and everyone has their own story. It's what makes us unique and you should always be proud to share it."

"Looking back I'm immensely proud of mine. Falling doesn't mean you failed. It means you are human and you are given another opportunity to learn. Which is why I have decided to continue doing what I love."

"These past few years, I've learnt more about myself that I  ever imagined and I can't wait to make a fresh start."

"One final shot, one final Olympic cycle attempt and what an honor it is to be part of British Gymnastics. Tokyo is a new dream a long term goal I never even considered a month ago but you can never connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking back and that's why life is scary exciting wonderful thing. So keep dreaming big."

Tokyo will be Beckie's third Olympics. She competed at Beijing and Rio Olympic Games.
