Suni Lee’s dad gifted a custom wheelchair by fellow Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles

John Lee, the father of Olympic gold medalist Suni Lee, received a new wheelchair from decorated gymnast and his daughter’s teammate, Simone Biles, last week.

Why he needed a wheelchair: In 2019, John fell off a ladder while trying to help a neighbor trim a tree. The accident left him with a spinal cord injury, which left him paralyzed from the chest down, as per NBC News.
