Lundyn VanderToolen began gymnastics at the age of 5 after watching the Olympics on TV and was mesmerized. She begged her mom to put her in gymnastics, and was moved up to pre-team and the TOPs Program at Olympus Gymnastics very quickly. Lundyn began competing level 4 in 2013 and won the all around at the Utah State Championships. After her level 4 season, during the Summer, Lundyn and her team participated in TOPs Testing and made the diamond team.She competed level 5 in 2014 where she also won the all around at the Utah State Championships. Again in the summer after her 2014 season, Lundyn did TOPs Testing and made the TOPs National A Team. During the 2015 Season, Lundyn competed level 7. At her first meet, the Arizona Grand Invitational, Lundyn took home the bars, floor, and all around titles. At the Level 7 Utah State Championships, Lundyn won the vault, bars and floor titles titles with a 9.5, 9.85 and 9.7, respectively. Lundyn came in second on beam with a 9.725 and qualified for regionals as a member of the Utah State Team.

A month later, Lundyn competed at the Brestyan’s Las Vegas National Elite Qualifier. Lundyn breezed through elite compulsories, scoring a 35.200.

Lundyn had a great meet, placed first on all events, and qualified for Hopes 10-11 by over 3 points! By qualifying for Hopes, Lundyn also qualified to the Hopes Classic where she will try to qualify to the Hopes Championships by placing in the top 18 in the all around.

After qualifying for Hopes, Lundyn headed back to Utah to compete at the 2017 Utah Level 9 State championships where she placed second on vault, beam, and floor, and first on vault and in the all around with a 38.150. From state, Lundyn qualified to regionals where she tied for third all around with a 38.200 and qualified to Westerns.

Lundyn closed out her season at the Hopes Championships where she had a great meet finishing third on vault, third on floor, and third all around.

Lundyn opened up her 2018 level 10 season at the Rocky Mountain Invitational but only competed two events. Lundyn's first meet where she competed all around was at the Tampa Bay Turners Invitational where she had a great meet and posted a 9.70 on bars. Two weeks later, Lundyn competed at the Fiesta Bowl National Elite Qualifier. While she just missed out on her optional score, Lundyn earned her Hopes compulsory score. Just weeks later, Lundyn headed to North Carolina to compete at the KPAC Cup National Elite Qualifier where she earned her Hopes Optional score in addition to winning the bars and all around titles. During this time, Lundyn was still competing level 10 and went on to win the beam, floor, and all around titles at the Utah State Championships. Lundyn qualified to the Region 1 Championships where she placed fifth on vault and floor. Lundyn also placed eighth all around: first alternate for JO Nationals.

Although Lundyn's JO season had concluded, her Hopes season was just beginning. On July 6, Lundyn competed in the Hopes Classic in Salt Lake City, UT. Even though Lundyn had a rocky start on beam, she came back and had a solid floor routine as well as a great vault and amazing bar routine. Lundyn came away from the competition with a gold medal on bars, third all around, and a ticket to the Hopes Championships in Columbus, OH. At the Hopes Championships, Lundyn had the meet of her life. Starting off on floor, Lundyn performed a great routine. Lundyn's momentum kept going and she finished the competition with a hit beam routine. After an amazing competition, Lundyn walked home with gold medals on bars and in the all around as well as a bronze on floor and a fourth place finish on beam.

Lundyn began her 2019 season at the Rocky Mountain Invitational where she earned her junior elite compulsory score.
