Becky & Ellie – Olympic trial

Becky (29) and Ellie (21) were in Cardiff preparing for Olympic trials when they learned brother Josh (24) had collapsed with a heart attack while training cricket.

Though having had no known heart condition, Josh died in hospital.

The sisters withdrew from competition, of course.

An awful and unexpected family tragedy.

British Gymnastics delayed team selection to provide an opportunity for Becky & Ellie to still qualify.
