Sunisa Lee is one of the top juniors in the United States. She trains at Midwest Gymnastics Center with Jess Graba.

Her favourite event is the balance beam, but she excels on the uneven bars. Earlier this season she won a silver medal on bars at the Gymnix International Junior Cup, as well as gold with the team.

On bars, she performs the very difficult Nabieva release skill, which is a toe-on toe-off straight Tkatchev, named after Russia's world champion Tatiana Nabieva.

Lee is expected to perform the Nabieva at the Secret U.S. Classic later this month.

Lee will turn senior in 2019, a year before the Tokyo Olympics. Once her elite career is over, she plans to compete for the Auburn Tigers, where the head coach is her current coach's twin brother, Jeff Graba.
