Athlete Retirement: Enid Sung and Danielle Prince
Gymnastics NSW wish to announce the retirement of two of Australia’s most celebrated Rhythmic gymnasts, Enid Sung and Danielle Prince.
Enid began her gymnastics journey at 12 so she could spend more time with her best friend after school. Training at Meriden Rhythmic Gymnastics under coach Danielle Le Ray, Enid quickly progressed through the ranks of Rhythmic Gymnastics within Australia, earning accolades for her amazing storytelling and movement as she performed her routines.
Her breakthrough international tournament was in the 2009 Australian Youth Olympic Festival, when she came third overall in the All-Apparatus, and second in the teams’ final. Enid went on to represent Australia at the 2010 World Championships, 2012 World University Games and countless World Cup Events, as well as placing 3rd All Around at Pacific Rim Championships in 2010. After a short hiatus from competition, Enid returned to rhythmic in 2016 and not only secured herself a position on the 2018 Commonwealth Games team, but walked away the highest ranked Australian, 4th in the All Around Final.
Much like Enid, Danni also began her gymnastics journey later into childhood. Originally from Queensland, Danni trained at Brisbane’s Premier Gymnastics under coach Gina Peluso. After relocating to NSW, Danni joined the High Performance team of Le Ray Gymnastics Academy.
Danni competed in an outstanding 7 FIG Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships, as well as being the sole Australian representative at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Part of the Gold medal winning team at the 2010 Dehli Commonwealth Games,
Danni made history this year when she became the only Australian female gymnast to represent her country at three consecutive Commonwealth Games.
Both Enid and Danni finished their outstanding careers as Commonwealth Games Team bronze medallist in front of their home crowd at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The team at Gymnastics NSW thank Enid and Danni for their outstanding contribution to Rhythmic Gymnastics, both on and off the competition floor. We wish them both the best of luck in their new endeavours.
