Sunisa Lee      

2020 Olympic Women's Gymnastics Gold Medalist

Sunisa Lee is an artistic gymnast and part of the United States women's national gymnastics team. She was a member of the team that won gold at the 2019 World Championships, where she also won silver on the floor exercise and bronze on the uneven bars. She won three medals at the USA Gymnastics National Championships during her first year as a senior elite gymnast, including a national title on the uneven bars.

Lee qualified for the 2020 Summer Olympics as a main team competitor, becoming the first Hmong American Olympian. On the first night of the Olympic Trials, Lee hit all four routines and posted an uneven bars score of 15.300. She ended the night in second place behind Biles. On the second night of competition she once again hit all four routines. Lee scored a 58.166 on day two, scoring higher than Biles' 57.533. This was the third time in Biles' senior career and first time since 2013 where someone posted a higher one-day all-around score. However Lee's two-day combined score was less than Biles' and she finished the competition in second place, which automatically qualified her to the Olympic team alongside Biles. Also named to the team were Jordan Chiles and Grace McCallum.
