Although the American Cup has dominated most of the World's Gymnastics attention, the English Championships were also on. This is the first major competition for English competitors in Espoir, Junior and Senior events. 

This competition was dominated mainly by Notts' Ellie Downie and East London's Tyesha Mattis. In the individual all-around competition, Tyesha swooped in to a 1st place finish, 0.7 ahead of Downie but Downie had something different to say in the event finals.
