British gymnast Ellie Downie is training a new difficult tumbling pass.

The 18 year old gymnast is training a forward double pike. The skill is named after US gymnast Brenna Dowell which she competed at 2015 World championships.

It is rated an F.

Ellie does three tumbling passe; double double tuck (H), 1.5 twist (C) to double tucked Arabian (E) and double back pike (D).

Downie, who became the first male or female British gymnast to win an all around gold medal at a European championship this year, did not compete at the World championships due to undergoing an ankle surgery last July.

The Rio Olympian injured her ankle in March but worked through the injury to compete at the European champions. Beside her all around gold, she won silver on vault and floor, a bronze on the uneven bars.

Downie has previously said that she has her eyes set on the upcoming Commonwealth Games which will be held in April 2018.
