Hmong American Gymnast Suni Lee Places Top Two in US Gymnastics Championship

An 18-year-old gymnast fighting to become the first Hmong American to make the Olympics gymnastics team placed runner-up behind four-time gold medalist Simone Biles on Sunday.

The championships: Suni Lee earned her second consecutive silver medal in the all-around competition and secured second place in the U.S. Gymnastics Championships over the weekend.

    Lee takes pride in her placement and says that it "felt really good to be in the top two," according to Star Tribune. The young gymnast finished with a total score of 114,950 points which fell behind Biles by 4.7 points.

    The championship placement secured her spot as a top contender for the Olympic trials. She was among a group of 18 gymnasts to qualify for the trials on June 24-27 in St. Louis. The U.S. will send a team of four women and two individual qualifiers to Tokyo for the Olympics.

    Lee caught the attention of Tom Forster, a high-performance coordinator for women's USA Gymnastics, after nailing a big finish against Jordan Chiles.

    Forster said she hasn't "put together a real solid all-around up to this point" because of her injuries, but it seems like she's "right back where she was in 2019."
