Minnesota Olympian Suni Lee Will Compete (And Hopefully Win) Upcoming DWTS Season
We know she is a star on the bars, but will Sunisa Lee rock the dance floor, too?
I guess we will find out in the upcoming season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars.
The thrilling news was announced yesterday in a short seven-second video.
As Lee mentions in the announcement, she is an Olympic gold medalist. In Tokyo this year, she walked away with the highly-sought gold medal in the women's gymnastics all-around event. She also took home a silver medal for the team competition and a bronze medal for uneven bars.
What's important to note is that Sunisa Lee is a St. Paul, Minnesota native. In other words, she deserves a lot of Minnesotan support. (So, tune in on September 20th and cheer her on!)
Suni Lee isn't the first Olympic gymnast to compete on Dancing With The Stars. Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Shawn Johnson, Mary Lou Retton, Laurie Hernandez, and Nastia Liukin have all taken a spin on the dance floor.
Perhaps Lee will join Hernandez and Johnson as Mirrorball winners!
The rest of the celebrities have not yet to be revealed, except for Dance Moms and Youtube personality Jojo Siwa, who will be dancing with a female partner, something unprecedented in DWTS's history.
The full cast will be revealed on September 8th. As mentioned earlier, the season, itself, starts on September 20th.
Mark it down on your calender, and get ready to cheer for our Minnesota star, Sunisa Lee!
