With all the focus on Biles' mental health, I thought it might be nice to give a shout out / congrats to Suni Lee - the all around champ in gymnastics at the Olympics. It's likely that had Biles competed, USA would have gone 1-2. Regardless, thought it might be nice to give Ms. Lee her own thread and congrats (not like she reads the BY!...)

Sunisa Lee wins gold for U.S. in gymnastics all-around at Tokyo Olympics


Jade Carey, the gymnast who replaced Biles, finished 9th. Congrats to Suni!! :)

There is a fairly lengthy discussion of Suni Lee’s gold medal on the Simone Biles thread.

That's really great for Suni and her family. Touching story with her and her Dad. Lots of hard work pays off. Says a lot for the country/program too. The top performer goes down and somebody else steps up and wins it all. Perhaps this will take some of the negative attention off Simone and allow her to focus and discuss mental health issues without the cruel backlash. Having good thoughts for her during her struggles.
