Enid Sung


        

2017 has seen Sung come out of retirement and start competing competitively in rhythmic Gymnastics in the lead up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Goad Coast. Sung has been busy early in 2017 competing on the international circuit at the Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cups in Sofia and Portimao in the lead up to the 2017 Australian Gymnastics Championships. 

Her breakthrough tournament was in the 2009 Australian Youth Olympic Festival, when she came third overall in the All-Apparatus, and second in the teams’ final. 

Consistent results in 2010 meant Sung was also selected for her maiden World Championships appearance in 2010, where she came 19th in the teams’ final.
