Suni Lee, Auburn star and Olympic gold medalist, flips while throwing out first pitch for Minnesota Twins
Suni Lee was one of the breakout stars of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, winning the gold medal in the all-around gymnastics competition.
She also earned a silver in the team competition and a bronze in the uneven bars. This past season, the now-Auburn star earned a gold medal at the NCAA Championships in the balance beam and a silver in the all-around.
On Friday, the Minnesota native was back in her home state, and she added some flair to her first pitch for the Minnesota Twins. As you can see below, she did a flip during her windup:

Lee will be returning to Auburn this upcoming season. We’ll see if she can lead Auburn to another impressive gymnastics season.
