As a Singer
On July 15, 2018, Sydney released her 1st cover of the song The One That Got Away by Katy Perry to commemorate the passing of her best friend’s brother, Caleb LeBlanc. A few months later, on October 5, 2018, she also released the official music video for the song cover.
First TV Show
She made her first TV show appearance on the series Panic 9-1-1 in 2012.
In February 2017, she trained around 22 hours a week in the gym, including cardio and endurance training. She also likes to stay active even on vacation, so she played golf with her family at the Myrtlewood Golf Course in Myrtle Beach, Horry County, South Carolina, the United States in November 2017. It was at that time that Sydney also switched gyms to better prepare for her Level 9 and Level 10 competitions.
In November 2018, Sydney had a very busy schedule and worked out at the gym between 4 and 5 days a week. The gym was an hour away from her home, so she had to wake up at 5 AM every day, even on weekends, in order to have enough time for her school obligations and to eat and rest. She reported that in the best-case scenario, she gets 7 hours of sleep. In June 2019, she also visited George Washington Gymnastics High-Performance Camp at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C., United States, and attended group training as preparation for upcoming Level 10 meets and competitions.
