Lee, who became the first Hmong American gymnast to earn Olympic gold on Thursday night in the women's individual all-around, posted a TikTok video of herself enjoying pizza and a dance session after her victory. In the clip, Lee is grooving around and posing to a sped-up version of Azealia Banks' "Luxury," while showing off her new hardware and wearing a Team USA tracksuit. She wrote in the caption, "on top of the world rn." 12 Gravity-Defying Photos from This Week's Competitions at the Tokyo Olympics Lee ended Thursday's competition with 57.433, just ahead of silver medalist Rebeca Andrade of Brazil's 57.298, and the Russian Olympic Committee's Angelina Melnikova, who finished with 57.199. Addressing her teammate Simone Biles' stunning exit from the event due to mental health concerns, Lee admitted that "coming into this competition, I didn't even think that I could be competing for a gold medal," noting she was focused on getting silver to Biles' presumed first-place finish.
