Suni Lee delivered an epic performance for the U.S. in the individual all-around gymnastics competition at the Tokyo Olympics on Thursday, narrowly beating Brazil’s Rebeca Andrade for gold.
Lee came into the floor routine needing a big score to catapult her to the top. She needed a 13.467 to top Russian Olympic Committee’s (ROC) Angelina Melnikova and picked up a 13.700.
The performers watched as Andrade took the floor for her performance and two slip-ups cost the Brazilian a few points in her final score.
She scored a 13.666, good enough for a silver medal. She raised an inquiry with the judges over her floor routine and the score was raised a bit, but not enough to top Lee. Melnikova picked up the bronze medal.
