The Gold Over America tour wouldn’t be a competitive match, but more of a gymnastics party for fans and athletes. Interestingly, they would also add a personal touch to their gymnastics moves. Simone had also revealed that she and the team would also perform their Tokyo Olympics routine.

When Simone Biles withdrew from her Tokyo Olympics 2020 event, Sunisa Lee went ahead and got the gold for America. Commonly known as ‘Suni Lee’, she clinched the gold medal in women’s artistic individual all-around events.

However, she is not part of the team traveling on the ‘Gold Over America tour’. The probable reason for her absence is her upcoming appearance in the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ season 30. The Olympic gymnast is following the footsteps of her teammate Simone Biles, who had also appeared on the show.
