US gymnast, Suni "Sunisa" Lee claimed the gold medal in the all-around gymnastics competition at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Lee makes history as the first Hmong American to compete in the Olympics and now tops that up by bringing home the gold medal.
"This is such a surreal moment. I just feel like I could have never been here ever. It doesn't even feel like real life," says the 18-year-old newly crowned champion.
With Lee's win, she continues the US' 17-year winning streak in gymnastics, a title that hung in balance after previous defending champion, Simone Biles withdrew from the competition. But the Minnesota native delivered an astonishing performance, showcased her spectacular routine in the uneven bars—one of the most difficult events in women's gymnastics.
