Suni Lee has just moved from the Olympic stage to the Dancing with the Stars stage!
The 18-year-old gymnast, who is the 2020 Olympic all-around champion and uneven times bronze medalist, performed a jive with her partner Sasha Farber during the season premiere in Los Angeles on Monday (Sept. 20).
“Competing at the Olympics is probably the most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever gone through. But coming to Dancing with the Stars, I’m freaking out. … I’m so nervous. I don’t know how to dance. People always assume that I would be a really good dancer, because of gymnastics, but it’s like completely different,” Suni said during her intro.
Suni scored 28 out of 40 for her performance, placing her second on the leaderboard.
