Bath's Harmonie-Rose has qualified as a finalist for an international sports competition.

The six-year-old has been selected in the under 12s category of the virtual inclusive sports challenge for her gymnastics skills.

More than 100 children from around the world applied to be part of the competition and Harmonie-Rose is the only child from the UK to make it to the finals.

She shared a one minute video of her gymnastic routine - which was filmed at Bath's Baskervilles Gym - and told judges what world leaders need to do to create a more accessible and inclusive future.

I want everyone to be treated with respect.
