Marfa Ekimova has enjoyed a whirlwind rise to the top of the rhythmic gymnastics world.
A year on from her senior international debut, Efimova claimed All-Around gold at Birmingham 2022.
On her Games debut, the Russian-born gymnast also claimed team bronze for her first major medals.
The 18-year-old won the All-Around gold by just 0.2 points as she top-scored in hoop and clubs, finishing second in ball and ribbon.
Ekimova had already become individual British champion in 2022 before going onto compete in three out of four apparatuses at the 2022 Rhythmic European Championships.
Her hoop performance saw her placed 23rd with a score of 29.400 and she followed up her performance with a 28th finish with clubs and a 30th finish with the ball.
Ekimova also competed in her debut senior World Championships in October 2021 as Britain's sole individual competitor.
