Will the gold medalist take home the mirror ball?
Olympian Suni Lee took home the gold medal at the Olympics for her epic gymnastics routine, but now she’s competing for a very different kind of award. Suni announced last month that she’d be competing on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars 30th season. The 18-year-old champion will compete against stars like JoJo Siwa, Olivia Jade, and Spice Girl Melanie C. See the full cast here.
Last week, Suni attended the 2021 Met Gala in New York City on Monday, dressed in a clever gold ensemble.
