U.S. gymnast Sunisa Lee on keeping focus amid uncertainty and tragedy

When her father was paralysed, many would have expected Sunisa Lee to shift her focus away from gymnastics and her performances to drop. Instead, the American used the accident as motivation and learned how to grow strong while facing things out of her control. Lee's performances in the U.S. championships and at Worlds in 2019 underlined that approach, and in an Olympic Channel exclusive, she shares how the gymnast and her dad are targeting the Tokyo Games in 2021 for very different reasons.
