To understand what makes Lee one of the best gymnasts in the world, we spent time with her in Minnesota as she prepared for her Olympic debut.
Lee isn’t a star only on the uneven bars. Her performance on the beam and floor will be just as important for her chances at an all-around medal and could help Team USA bring home a third consecutive team gold medal. https://t.co/nYweH5TXPy https://t.co/BtBGkhFELg
