As if we didn’t already feel hugely inferior to the athletic prowess of our favorite Olympians, they also continue to prove their mettle in fashion.
At the 2021 Met Gala, which took place on Monday, September 13, a number of Olympic athletes, some who participated in the Tokyo Games in 2020 and others who participated years ago, had the look right at home on the red carpet.
The 2020 US silver medalist women’s gymnastics team was well represented as Simone Bilès and Sunisa Lee attended the Met Gala. Both women won individual medals in Tokyo, while Simone won bronze on the beam, while Sunisa, who is expected to compete on Dancing with the stars season 30, won all-around gold and bronze on uneven bars.
Other athletes at the event who competed in Tokyo were Naomi Osaka and Allyson Felix, while Serena williams, Venus Williams and Russell westbrook were among the stars who had represented their home country at previous Games.
