Jessica Gadirova

The 18-year-old became just the fifth individual British world champion when she won floor gold in November.

That triumph came after Gadirova successfully defended her European floor title in Munich in August.

Among three World Championship medals in Liverpool, she also became the first British woman to win a world all-around medal, with bronze in that event.
