An Impressive Beam Balance

Suni's balancing act impressed the commentator, who praised her technique, saying she's light on her feet hence her graceful performance. In the third slide of the pictures below, Suni hit her signature mid-air split, flaunting her toned muscles from glutes to thighs and legs. She makes it look so easy.

Although she faced stiff competition from another former USA Team gymnast Trinity Thomas, Suni held her own. After clearing Lee on the floor, Thomas won the all-around title, but Sunni still managed to bring the medal home.

Team Auburn Is Gliding To The Finals

NBC Sports reports that Suni has a big decision to make at the closing of the year because she has the option to renew her commitment to Auburn or return to the professional world of gymnastics. Meanwhile, she celebrated with her team when they learned of their advancement to the next level. The ladies were all smiles, while some were shocked because Auburn hadn't done so well recently.

Suni Made An Unquantifiable Contribution To The Team

Before the season started, Coach Jeff Graba said
