Who is Sunisa Lee?
According to the Deseret News, Sunisa Lee — also known as Suni Lee — is a Hmong American gymnast who performed well at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She became the sixth American woman to win a gold medal in the women’s all-around competition.
- Lee — who is 18 and the youngest Team USA gymnast in Tokyo — beat her competition at the event by one-tenth of a point to win the gold medal.
Lee, who is from Minnesota, “went to the gym every day for all the first-generation Americans who wanted to achieve success when their parents had come to the United States with nothing,” reported The New York Times.
She is from a close-knit family. Her father has often cheered for her and supported her in her craft.
