Both hail from Minnesota and were greeted by more than 200 people, MPR News reported.
Lee won gold in the individual all-around, silver in the team competition and bronze in the uneven bars, while McCallum was part of the team that won silver.
“We just wanted to thank you so much for all your love and support. We wouldn’t be here today without all of you, so thank you,” McCallum said, according to MPR News.
Added Lee: “Yeah, we’re definitely feeling the love and support. This is absolutely amazing. It’s amazing to see all of your faces and just to be here all together. It’s pretty great. Thank you for everything. Minnesota, represent!”
Amelie Morgan signs with Utah gymnastics
In a related note given that McCallum will start competing collegiately at the University of Utah this winter, the program announced Friday morning that another Olympic medalist will be joining her.
Just before the Olympics started, Great Britain’s Amelie Morgan announced that she would be going to Utah — her original plan was to go to Cal — but the thought was that she wouldn’t arrive until 2022 and wouldn’t compete until the 2023 season.
That has now changed with her signing Friday.
Morgan was part of the four-gymnast team that won bronze for Great Britain, just behind Team USA.
“We are beyond thrilled to have Amelie Morgan join our program,” Utah coach Tom Farden said in a statement. “Her contributions at the Tokyo Olympic Games helped Team Great Britain to a historic team medal. She is known for her work ethic and unshakeable determination. We feel these qualities will serve her well in the NCAA and in our program.”
A third incoming Utah freshman, Kara Eaker, was named a Team USA alternate for the Olympics, and uneven bars national champion Sage Thompson will join the class as well.
