Suni Lee’s family reacting to gold medal in all-around gives you all the feels

Suni Lee continued the dominance of the USA gymnastics team by winning gold in the all-around at the 2021 Olympics.

Suni Lee is the gold medal winner in the all-around, continuing the stretch of dominance for Team USA in the event.

This marks the fifth straight summer Olympics that an American has won the gold medal in the all-around.

Carly Patterson started the streak in 2004, Nastia Liukin won in 2008, Gabby Douglas in 2012, Simone Biles in 2016 and Lee makes it five gold medals in a row for the most prestigious event in women’s gymnastics.

Suni Lee makes it 5 straight wins in all-around for USA

Biles entered the Olympics as the leading contender from the Americans to repeat as the all-around champion but withdrew during the team event citing her mental health. She later withdrew from the individual all-around competition, opening the door for Lee to continue the gold medal streak for Team USA.

She did just that with a strong floor routine to finish with a 57.433 to cement the gold medal for the Auburn gymnast.

Brazil’s Rebeca Andrade stepped out of bounds during her floor routine on two occasions to preserve the gold for Lee. ROC’s Angelina Melnikova took home the bronze medal.
