Tisserand Aromatherapy, the go-to brand for aromatherapy and wellbeing solutions, is proud to announce the support of 16-year-old gymnast and rising star, Sophie Scott, as part of a new initiative to back grass root sports.

Looking at Sophie's list of achievements, you could be forgiven for thinking she is older than her 16 years. In this short time, she has already shown such bravery and dedication to her sporting passion, and her years of hard work have started to pay off.

Sophie's love of gymnastics started at the age of 4 when she began attending Leatherhead and Dorking Gymnastics Club. She was a natural performer, competing in both gymnastics and trampolining at a high level. After becoming Under 13’s British Trampoline Champion in 2011 she decided to focus on gymnastics. Four years later she was competing for the Great Britain Junior Team at the Rushmoor Rosebowl where the team won Gold overall and she achieved 1st place in Vault and Bars.

Having been selected for the GB Junior Squad in 2015 & 2016, Sophie has recently secured a place in the GB Senior Squad and her goal is to compete for Great Britain as a Senior.

Not only a gifted gymnast, Sophie is also a straight-A student. Studying for her GCSE’s in 2017, she ensures her grades don’t slip due to her intense 25 hours a week training schedule, by spending most of her free time studying. After gymnastics, the talented teen hopes to pursue a career in sports sciences; choosing to study Sciences and History for her A-Levels when she finishes school.

With this much pressure, Sophie takes her health and wellbeing seriously and prefers to use natural alternatives to manage stress and nerves. With support and guidance from her sponsor, Tisserand Aromatherapy, she uses it’s essential oil blends and products to help keep her focused, energised and rested to remain at the top of her sport.

Despite her achievements, she is still a regular teenager and between training enjoys meeting up with friends and following beauty and fashion trends.

It’s safe to say things are only on the up for this phenomenal gymnast, and she is certainly one to watch…
