Minnesota native Sunisa Lee, also known as Suni, is just 18 years old, but the high school graduate is no stranger to facing down immense pressure.

In an already history-making Olympics, Lee's role in this year's games makes her the first Hmong American to make the U.S. Olympic team. She won gold in Thursday's individual all-around competition in women’s gymnastics.
