She might not have had the best start to her World Gymnastics Championships but Becky Downie insists she will be back and ready to shine for next week's finals.

The British team got things going at the SSE Hydro on Friday and finished the fourth qualifying session top of the pile on 227.162.

That result should be enough for a top-eight spot, meaning the girls will get the chance to go again next week as well as sealing their spot at Rio 2016.

For Downie it was far-from plain sailing though as she struggled to find her rhythm on the uneven bars and suffered a fall leaving her with a score of 13.500 and 27.600 overall.

But the 23-year-old believes her experience will prove vital as looks to bounce back from adversity and help her team to success.

“I was taking a risk, you have to take a risk in gymnastics,” she said. "The routine is pretty new and it is a gamble but today it didn't pay off for me.

“Under competition pressure I just panicked and you only have a second to make a decision and I made the wrong one.

“The mistakes today aren't down to lack of effort or lack of work it's just one of those things and I know I couldn't have done any more.

“I have made a lot of mistakes in my career and you learn from them and this will be no different.

“Out there we want everyone to do really well and this team effort out there was brilliant and I couldn't have asked for any more.

“The crowd were amazing and I am hoping we make a team final and we will have a chance to shine again.”
