Suni Lee who won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics has opened up on why she avoided signer Justin Bieber at Met Gala 2021
Although Simon Biles withdrew from Team USA’s artistic gymnastic competition at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 citing mental health problems, the country managed to taste consummate success at the event nonetheless.
It was down to Suni Lee who brought home gold for her country in the all-round gymnastics competition. It was a display which was widely lauded with Lee’s exceptional performance being a testament to the expansive skill set she’s endowed with in the world of gymnastics.
Suni Lee made her presence felt at Met Gala 2021 as well with the athlete sharing an incident between her and Justin Bieber at the event. Lee talked about how why she despite being an ardent Justin Bieber fan had decided to refrain from meeting the singer despite being offered a chance to do so.

Lee opened up on her conversation with Hailey Baldwin, whom she had told about her love for Bieber and his songs. And while Baldwin had asked her to meet up with Bieber and tell him about how she felt directly, Lee was too nervous to take the step.
The American gymnast had danced to Bieber’s Stay during the Dancing with the Stars competition, a performance which had seen her be awarded 28 points from 40.
“I talked to her, and I was shaking, and I was like, ‘Hi, I’m Suni.’ And then I was just telling her how I was dancing to Justin Bieber’s ‘Stay’ for my first Dancing with the Stars dance. And she’s like, ‘You should tell him.’ And I’m like, ‘OK,’” said Lee.
