Watch Suni Lee Land a Flip in High Heels on DWTS Like the True Olympic Champion She Is
It's only week two of Dancing With the Stars, and Olympic all-around gold medalist Suni Lee is already incorporating gymnastics skills into her dance routines with partner Sasha Farber. At the beginning of the pair's cha-cha on Sept. 27, Farber flipped Lee from the ground into the air to land on her feet, high heels and all! After the performance, judge Derek Hough exclaimed, "Can we just talk about that flip, by the way?!"
The flip was a front handspring of sorts — Lee started with her hands on the floor and traveled forward with her heels over her head. She even rebounded out of it a bit before flawlessly transitioning through to the next dance sequence.
Farber later commended Lee in his Instagram Story for "pushing the limits." Lee shared via Twitter, "thank you sasha for being the best partner & thank you for pushing me to be ME every single day."
Ahead, check out the impressive moment and the full cha-cha routine that earned them a 28 out of 40.
