Biography/Timeline

1992

Whelan, the daughter of Mike and Karen Whelan, was born on 1 July 1992 in Singapore, where she lived until she was two years old. Her family then moved to Stockport, England. It was there that Whelan began gymnastics. She said: "At the age of six, after constantly cartwheeling around the house and Tesco, I persuaded my mum to take me to a gymnastic class. There, I was immediately spotted as a talent and began training at South Manchester Gymnastics Club with coach Helen Hall." A year later, when Whelan was seven, her family moved to the United States, where she trained at Flips Gymnastics Academy in Texas.
