How soon life changed for Minnesota native Gymnast 2020 Tokyo Olympic All round gold medalist Sunni Lee.
The Associated Press writes ” Sunisa Lee’s life changed the second she placed a gold medal around her neck. The newly minted Olympic gymnastic champion’s plans, however, have not.”
Both Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter declared Friday “Sunisa Lee Day,” a symbol of just how quickly things can turn when you stand atop the podium at the Olympics with the national anthem playing and NBC’s ever-present cameras zooming in.
