According to Sports Illustrated, former all-around Olympic champion, Suni Lee conquers competition on February 5th against the LSU Tigers scoring a perfect 10 on the uneven bars.

Opelika Auburn News wrote, the scores of the competition between Auburn and LSU had a .225 difference with LSU winning with a score of 197.975.

Auburn score was 197.750. Even though it was a loss, that was the highest team score Auburn University has ever had

Along with that Lee had an individual all-around score of 39.826, which is the highest all-around score the University has even seen.

Lee was not the only gymnast that scored a 10 that day. Fellow Olympian teammate UCLA’s Jordan Chiles scored a 10 for her floor routine to iconic Lizzo and Cardi B song’s.

All three of these women won sliver together at the Olympics final back in 2021.

Sports Illustrated said that Lee performed well under the pressure after LSU’s Haleigh Bryant scored a 10 on the vault. That is what brought LSU to victory.
