The Winter Olympics of 2022 will begin on Friday, February 4 and will end on Sunday, February 20. The Winter Olympics this year will be held in Beijing, China. We have a lot to look forward to at this year’s Winter Olympics. Still, we should remember the amazing athletes who competed at the Olympics in past years…. such as Sunisa Lee.
Sunisa Lee (or Suni Lee) is an Olympic gold medalist. She was a leader on the women’s artistic gymnastics team in the Summer Olympics in the year 2020. The Summer Olympics in 2020 were held in Tokyo, Japan.
Suni Lee won the gold medal in the Women’s All-Around Competition that year. She is the first Asian-American to win the gold medal at the Women’s All-Around Competition at the Olympics.
Now, Suni Lee is a freshman in college. She attends Auburn University in the city of Auburn, Alabama and is studying business. Suni Lee still loves artistic gymnastics and is an athlete on the women’s gymnastics’ team at her university. She remains a strong competitor on her team at Auburn University.
Suni Lee competed in her first NCAA artistic gymnastics meet a few days ago with her college gymnastics team. The NCAA stands for The National Collegiate Athletic Association. Suni Lee competed in front of a crowd of around 10,345 people at the Arkansas’ Bud Walton Arena.
Suni Lee competed on three apparatuses that night. She competed on the floor exercise, the uneven bars, and the balance beam. She did a great job on each apparatus. However, her most skilled performance was on the floor exercise. Suni Lee received a 9.875 on the floor exercise at this competition.
Suni Lee is well-known for competing at the Summer Olympics in the year 2020. The Summer Olympics of 2020 were held in Tokyo, Japan. Suni Lee did outstanding at the competition when she won the gold medal at the Women’s All-Around Competition. She is the fifth American in a row to win the gold medal at the Women’s All-Around Competition.
Suni Lee was also on the popular television show named, “Dancing with the Stars.” She placed fifth on that television show. She did an amazing job night-after-night as she performed in front of a live audience doing complicated dance steps with her partner.
She was also Sport’s Illustrated Magazine’s Best Female Athlete of the Year in the year 2021.
It sounds like Suni Lee is still doing wonderful things even though she is finished being an Olympian. It is wonderful that she is still doing all that she can do. Congratulations to her!
Always and forever,
