Amy Quinn

                                                 
      

Quinn is considered one of Australia’s brightest Rhythmic Gymnastics talents, having made the 2014 Commonwealth Games squad at the age of just 16, finishing a respectable 21st in All-Apparatus, and 13th with the Ball. 

Quinn’s Senior national results since moving up from Junior competition in 2013 have been nothing short of sensational, finishing in the top five in every apparatus she has competed in, including second in the All-Apparatus finals in 2014, as well as medalling in Club (second), Ball (second), Hoop (third) and Ribbon (third). 

Quinn represented Australia at her first World Championships in 2014, and aims to compete in many more throughout her career.

Amy trains at the Rhythmic Gymnastics Academy (WA) with coach Krasi Yurukova.
