Around 7:15pm today at the The Rim in San Antonio, TX my car was broken into by this guy and he took the bag containing all 3 of my Paralympic gold medals 🥇 🥇 🥇 🥺 Asking for help getting them back n getting the word out in any way possible 🙏🏽 <a href="https://t.co/HuvwPjPxzY">pic.twitter.com/HuvwPjPxzY</a>
Fortunately, the medals have been recovered, according to San Antonio Police Chief Bill McManus:
Lee was the backup goaltender for the U.S. paralympic hockey team behind Steve Cash at the 2014 and 2018 Paralympics before taking the reins as a starter in 2022. He did not allow a goal in any of his four starts during the 2022 Games, highlighted by a 16-save shutout in the United States' 5-0 win over Canada in the gold-medal game.
The United States has won four straight gold medals at the Paralympics overall.
