Minnesotans Suni Lee and Regan Smith both took home medals at the Tokyo Olympics Sunday.
Gymnast Suni Lee, who hails from St. Paul, won the bronze medal in the uneven bars event final. Swimmer Regan Smith of Lakeville won a silver medal in the 4x100-meter medley relay.
Lee, the all-around gold medal winner, scored a 14.500 with her uneven bars routine. The score was lower than her qualifying score of 15.300, partly due to missed connections between skills.
The win came after the U.S.’s Simone Biles withdrew from some of the event finals, including bars.
Lee was also part of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team that took home the silver medal in the team final. She will compete again Tuesday in the beam event final.
Belgium’s Nina Derwael won gold in the event, while Anastasia Ilyankova of the Russian Olympic Committee won silver.
Smith’s silver marked her final race of the Olympic games. She also won the bronze medal in the 100-meter backstroke, qualifying for the race in record time, and silver in the 200-meter backstroke.
Smith’s win Saturday made her the first Minnesotan to win more than two medals in the Olympics. Lee quickly became the second with her uneven bars medal, according to the Star Tribune.
