Today I want to profile the best young sportspersons who made a splash during 2020. These are the prospects I look forward to watching in 2021 and beyond across a variety of sporting disciplines. My cut off age is 21 years so that there is no confusion as to what “young” is.
10. SUNISA LEE(GYMNASTICS)
She is a 17 year old American gymnast who along with Simone Biles was a medal hopeful for Tokyo Olympics 2020 until Covid-19 showed up. She will however get her chance at the delayed games in 2021. She came in second to Biles at the nationalsin 2019 used as qualifiers for Tokyo. Despite her inexperience, she scored a difficult to match 6.4 on bars winning her the title for that discipline.
