Flipbook Artist Shares Tribute to Sunisa Lee's Olympic Gold Win

The gold medal-winning achievements of US gymnast Sunisa “Suni” Lee at the Tokyo Olympics has provided the inspiration for some incredible flipbook art.

Created by Ben Zurawski, a professional flipbook artist who goes by the name theflippist, a YouTube video featuring the work was posted on July 30 – a day after Lee won gold in the women’s individual all-around gymnastics final.

Talking about his work — which shows some of Lee’s routine, as well as the ecstatic response of her family to her win — Zurawski said, “After spending the night drawing a portion of her routine frame by frame, I still don’t understand how the human body can just fly through the air like that.” Credit: theflippist via Storyful
