Sunisa Lee

Warning! 18-year-old siren up ahead.

Tiger suggested Sunisa (born 2003/3/9), who will be the first Hmong American to represent the US. At the Olympic Games.

Back in the day, Suni—as her friends call her—practiced on a balance beam her dad had slapped together out of plywood, with a mattress underneath for the inevitable falls. Zip forward about 10+ years, and Suni was ready for the Olympics until the virus postponed them. Then coming back she broke her foot. It looks like it’s finally her time though, as she’s made the Olympic team. In fact, she beat Simone Biles in the all-around. That’s the first time anybody’s done that in any phase of an all-around meet since 2013. Suni credits her dad, who was paralyzed from the waist down after 2019 accident, as her inspiration. The pep talks he gives her before every gymnastics competition helps her focus. Looks like they’re working.

    After everything that the US women’s gymnastics team has gone through in the last decade I am going to steer clear of anything that might be interpreted as objectification. I will say she is an impressive woman and I am enjoying watching her in the Olympics.

    A tremendous athlete who also happens to be super physically attractive…its ok to win the genetic lottery. She is also part of a team that represents what is great about America. We are a nation of many different peoples from near and far. That’s our ace, our advantage, our promise, our unique story! Go women’s gymnastics team!!

    Congrats to Sunisa. There’s nothing wrong with being talented and beautiful, and she’s a great example of the best that America has to offer.

    (But, that last comment seems a little unnecessary, tiger.)

    An amazing accomplishment that rewards her for her tireless hard work! That and the fact that she is beautiful bodes well for a fantastic future ahead of her.

    I’m just impressed with how mature everybody has been so far in the comments. I guess I’ll have to vent my imagination elsewhere.

    She’s a year older than my daughter so I’m going to stay Rated G on this one. She is like little super hero though doing things I could only ever imagine being able to.
