Sunisa Lee has won an Olympic medal. 

The incoming freshman and the other members of Team USA won silver in Tuesday’s team final with a score of 166.096. Russia won gold with a 169.528 and Great Britain took bronze with their 164.096.

Team USA was forced to regroup early on in the final after Simone Biles withdrew due to a medical issue, according to a statement from USA Gymnastics.

Despite the significant loss, Lee and her teammates rallied to win the silver medal. Lee competed on the bars, beam and floor, scoring a team-leading 15.400 on the bars and followed it up with a 14.133 on the beam and 13.666 on the floor.

Lee is a first-time Olympian and will have three more opportunities to win medals in Tokyo. She is also competing in the individual all-around final, bars final and the beam final.
