TOKYO (AP) — Sunisa Lee is an Olympic champion. The 18-year-old gymnast from Minnesota edged Rebeca Andrade of Brazil for gold in the women's Olympic all-around final. Lee's total of 57.433 points was just enough to slip by Andrade. The Brazilian became the first gymnast from Latin America to win a medal in the all-around. Russian gymnast Angelina Melnikova took bronze. Defending Olympic champion Simone Biles watched from the stands after opting out of the competition to focus on her mental health.
