BRESCIA, Italy, Gymnastic National Championships: Over the weekend Olympic hopefuls and juniors training towards that goal were on center stage in Italy. The US women’s squad locked in the top 3 spots, led by their Captain Simone Biles. Simone is like a fine wine as she continues to get better with age, this victory marked her record-breaking seventh national title.
Teammates Suni Lee and Jordan Chiles came in second and third respectively. Miss Lee is the youngest on the squad at just 18, Jordan is older by two years and has been training with Simone. All of the hard work and dedication these ladies put in behind closed doors is showing in real-time.
From June 24-27 in St. Louis, Missouri the U.S. Olympic Team Trials will be held. The last stand the athletes have at the opportunity of getting a chance just to get in the arena. All the years of practice come down to one opportunity, it’s time for the Lions to eat. Best of luck to all those competing, may the best be victorious.
IMUer’s enjoy all three ladies’ full routines and let us know what events are you most looking forward to watching this summer?
