Winter Cup will be a comeback for Olympic champion Suni Lee, whose training has been limited for much of last year by a kidney ailment.

 

Just call Winter Cup the Suni Show.

Sunisa Lee was always going to be in the spotlight at Saturday’s meet. It’s her first since she had to skip the world team selection camp last fall because of a kidney issue that limited her training, and she’s debuting a skill on uneven bars no one’s ever done.

 

Winter Cup will be a comeback for Olympic champion Suni Lee, whose training has been limited for much of last year by a kidney ailment.

But now that Gabby Douglas isn’t making her return to competition for the first time since 2016 — she withdrew Thursday because of COVID — all of the focus will be on Lee, the reigning Olympic champion.

“I’m doing really good,” Lee said, beaming, after training Friday. “I’m just so happy to be here.”

Lee is only doing bars and balance beam at Winter Cup, but she’s definitely the one to watch. Here’s everything you need to know:

When is Winter Cup? And where is it?
The senior women’s meet is from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

There’s also a senior men’s meet that runs over two days. Day 1 is from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Friday and Day 2 is from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Sunday.
