Minnesotans At The Olympics: Who's Bringing Home Gold?

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- One Minnesotan has already earned a gold medal at the Tokyo Summer Games, and several more will have their shot.

Former Gopher swimmer Bowe Becker swam the third leg of the men's 4x100 meter freestyle relay. He put Team USA in a great spot to beat Australia, and the team is in fact bringing home the gold.

Lakeville swimmer Regan Smith set an Olympic record in the 100-meter backstroke, but Australia ended up with the fastest time.

In women's gymnastics, St. Paul's Suni Lee has a shot at bringing home four Olympic medals. Lee has qualified for the finals in the all-around, uneven bars and beam. Lee and Isanti's Grace McCallum are also hoping to win gold for Team USA's third consecutive team title.
