'There was a lot of time I wanted to quit': Sunisa Lee on winning gymnastics all-around gold

6 200 Көрүүлөр 348 миӊ.

Sunisa Lee came to Tokyo thinking the best she might do was win an all-around Olympic silver but the youngest member of the US gymnastics team grabbed the gold after Simone Biles dropped out of the event over mental health concerns.

With Biles watching from the front row at the Ariake Gymnastics Centre, Lee won the all-around to secure the title for the US for a fifth straight Games on the final rotation - the floor exercise - for a 57.433 winning total.

Surprise package, 22-year-old Brazilian Rebeca Andrade, who had topped the rankings for the majority of the evening, took the silver for her country's first-ever medal in women's gymnastics and Russian Angelina Melnikova completed the podium by taking the bronze for the ROC.

    This is what defines a champion! It’s the ability to perform under intense pressure and scrutiny on a global stage w the weight of your country and your people on your shoulders and all eyes locked on you at the premiere competition that boasts the highest stakes for your sport. To shine and out perform everyone under these extreme conditions makes you the GOAT! We really need to acknowledge the mental strength and acumen, the perseverance and resiliency it takes to successfully perform under that kind of debilitating, mind twisting, explosive pressure. Suni delivered a gold medal performance and so much more. How she handled this level of pressure is just phenomenal especially at just 18 yrs of age. She is a fierce and bright star and so incredibly deserving of the title! What a pro and world class athlete!! Go Suni. I can’t wait to see what the future of the sport holds for you and what you will do to and with it!

    There may have been times you wanted to give up but you are an amazing athlete and you pushed forward rather than decide you are mentally ill this is the true test of the best it’s so easy to quit and just sit in the background but you did what you went to Tokyo to do and the whole country is proud of you and we are grateful for what you accomplished so enough about Simone when she chose to quit she should have gotten on a plane and gone home

Simone is in fr a shock,they didn't even really talk abt her today,I'm sure she's regretting why she did wat she did,it was just so dramatic and unnecessary
