18-year-old American gymnast Suni Lee had her shining moment at Tokyo Olympics 2020. The defending champion and GOAT of gymnastics, Simone Biles, was slated to clinch the podium finishes. However, Biles had to take a step back because of her mental health. That’s when Suni Lee came into the picture and stunningly clinched the gold medal for Team USA at Tokyo Olympics 2020.
