US Rhythmic gymnast Laura Zeng scored a 15.350 and placed seventh in the ball final at the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland. Zeng, a 2016 Olympian and three-time U.S. rhythmic champion, advanced to the ball final by placing eighth in the qualification round.
Zeng suffered an unfortunate neutral deduction of .600 in the hoop competition, which kept her from advancing to the final in that event. Her score of 14.900 landed her in 14th place.
Zeng is a native of Libertyville, Illinois and trains at North Shore Rhythmic Gymnastics Center.
