AUBURN, Ala. (WBRC) - Auburn gymnastics incoming freshman Sunisa Lee finished her week in Tokyo as the most decorated Team USA gymnastics athlete in this year’s games.

She ended her Tokyo 2020 Olympics experience with a showing in the beam final Tuesday. She finished fifth with a 13.866.

Lee went fourth in the event for Team USA behind teammate Simone Biles.
