"I don’t want to peak too early" - Suni Lee expresses content with her progress since the comeback

Suni Lee secured a gold medal in the All-Around event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics following Simone Biles' withdrawal. After achieving the glorious feat, she joined the Auburn gymnastics team.

However, her career was marked by extreme challenges as she suffered from kidney issues, which led to the premature end of her college career and she remained dormant from the sport for a while.

However, she competed at the 2024 Winter Cup in Kentucky. She attempted to get a new element on the uneven bars named after her but fell short of creating the history. The gymnast even faltered on the balance beam once. Nevertheless, during an interview with the Olympics, she expressed her contentment with the slow progress ahead of the Summer Games.

“I don’t want to peak too early. It feels normal. I feel like I’m going at a good pace,” said Suni Lee. “I’m getting all of my routines back and working on consistency. Right now, I’m starting to visualize all of my routines and really try and put them together and get them crisp and clean.”

The 2024 U.S. Championships will act as part of the U.S. women's selection procedure for Paris.
