Biography

Umeå’s Gun Röring was a member of the Swedish gymnastics team that went into the 1952 Olympics as the reigning World Champions (though Röring hadn’t been on the World Championship team). The Swedes, with Röring placing 23rd in the individual all-around, missed out on a medal in Helsinki, finishing fourth. However, in the now defunct group event with portable apparatus - similar to modern-day rhythmic gymnastics - the Swedish women emerged as the clear winners.
