Sui Lu

Sui LuSport: Gymnastics

Nation: People's Republic of China

DOB: April 1, 1992

Career Highlights: Sui was the 2011 world champion on balance beam - defeating teammate Yao Jinnan and all-around world champ Jordyn Wieber of the United States - and added a silver medal on floor exercise and a bronze in team competition at that meet in a breakout performance. She won gold in all-around, balance beam floor and the team event at the 2010 Asian Games. Sui also earn world championship bronzes in 2010 (team) and ’09 (floor). She has rebounded from her disappointment of 2008, when inconsistent performances caused her to be left off the Chinese team and made her ponder retirement. Sui claims that her work in controlling her emotions and overcoming jitters has helped her manage that inconsistency. A specialist on beam and floor, she’s considered another threat to medal from the powerful Chinese team.
