Career or sporting profile

Kat took up the sport of trampolining at the age of seven after taking lessons during her school holidays. As a member of Jumpers Trampoline Club in Gillingham (Kent), Kat first took part on the international circuit competing in the World Age Games in 1998.

Kat has been one of Britain’s leading trampoline gymnasts a number of years, finishing the 2011 season as the world number one both individually and in synchronized trampoline with partner Amanda Parker.

In 2013, at the World Games, Kat was crowned women’s synchro Champion with Amanda Parker repeating that feat at the World Championships along with winning team gold.

At the 2015 European Games Kat won individual silver and then most recently, in 2016, at the European Championships in Valladolid, Kat took individual bronze as well as being part of the team that won gold. After making the team for the 2016 Olympic Games, Kat qualified for the final, making British history, before finishing 6th. In 2017, after winning silver at the British Championships, Kat took home team bronze from the World Championships in Sofia.

Career ambitions:

I would like to be the first GB trampoline gymnast to compete at 3 Olympic Games, make the final and see how close to a medal I can get.

An interesting and little-known fact about you.

I’m a huge F1 fan – I follow Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton!

Favourite Bam flavour:

Ok that’s a tough one as they are all great! But… I think with Banoffee 25G High Protein or Banana.
