Olympic gold medallist Suni Lee says she was pepper-sprayed in racist attack while waiting for Uber

Sky News says An Olympic gold medallist has said she was pepper-sprayed in a racist attack while waiting for an Uber with a group of friends.

Sunisa ‘Suni’ Lee said she experienced the attack recently, as she opened up about the ordeal in an interview with PopSugar.

Lee became the first Asian-American woman to win Olympic gold in the women’s gymnastics all-around at the Tokyo 2020 Games.

The 18-year-old, who is currently a contestant on the US show Dancing With The Stars, said a group came by in a speeding car yelling racist slurs, including telling her and her friends, who are also of Asian descent, to “go back to where they came from”.
