Who is Sunisa Lee? Olympic gold medallist

Even though one of Team USA’s top stars is in a battle against time to qualify for the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024, she continues to dazzle admirers online.

At the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Sunisa Lee won gold in the women’s all-around gymnastics competition. However, a terrible kidney condition ended her college career early and caused her to miss the NCAA regional, the Southeastern Conference Championships, and the end of the regular season.

She has 1.6 million Instagram followers, proving that she is still building a sizable online following base. Her followers are frequently left wanting more, whether it be stunning training videos of her flipping through the air, the occasional bikini and swimsuit selfie, or, most unusually, pictures of her endorsing crocs.

And the former standout athlete for Auburn University is frequently more than happy to comply.

Given that she is now working to rehabilitate in order to compete in the Olympics in Paris the following year, this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. She was sidelined due to a “non-gymnastics kidney issue” and hasn’t competed much since.

She has vowed to do everything in her power to regain her previous level of fitness with less than a year till the Olympics. In April, Lee posted on her Instagram profile, “It’s been difficult to end my Auburn career early, but I am thankful for all the love and support.”

“I will not stop pursuing my dreams for a bid to Paris in 2024. In fact, this experience has sharpened my vision for the future.

“I appreciate all the love and support, and I want to especially thank my doctors, coaches, and the Auburn medical staff for their care during this time.” As well as her family and competitive circles, she is regularly heralded with compliments by adoring fans every day.

As well as numerous comments of “I love you” some fans have gone to even further lengths by saying “I worship you” or “you have the prettiest body I have ever seen.” However, she is not just a pretty face. There is plenty of determination and steel behind her.

“I’ve been able to experience that once-in-a-lifetime feeling and the indescribable emotion when a gold medal is draped around your neck,” Lee added. “But I don’t want it to be just once in a lifetime.”
