U.S. Olympic Trials – Gymnastics – Tokyo 2020

Tokyo 2020 (NBC Sports)

The U.S. Olympic Trials are underway with Gymnastics coming into the spotlight NBC as the Summer Olympics in Tokyo inches closer.

With swimming and diving already completed and Track and Field coming to a close this weekend, it’s time to see who gets to represent Team USA in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for gymnastics. The action begins with the men’s competition taking place on Thursday, June 24 at 6:30 PM ET on NBCSN and Peacock from The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Mo. Overall, NBC Olympics will present 10 hours of gymnastics coverage over four consecutive days and nights, including more than six hours on NBC. Live coverage culminates this Sunday, June 27, with primetime coverage of the women’s second night of competition at 8:30 PM ET/PT on NBC.

NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app will stream all 10 hours and present additional cameras on all apparatus during live coverage for a multi-view streaming experience. Additionally, Peacock will live stream NBCSN and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA coverage of the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Team Trials.

Four-time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, who won her record seventh national all-around title earlier this month, is expected to lead the women’s team. She has the chance to tie or break the all-time record for gold medals won by a U.S. woman (eight). Four-time world medalist Jade Carey has already secured an individual spot. Three-time world medalist Suni Lee and Jordan Chiles are also competing for spots. There are five spots available for the U.S. women’s team at Trials. Four will be chosen for the team event in Tokyo while another is going to compete as an individual. These five, in addition to Jade Carey, will form the U.S. women’s team headed for Tokyo.

Turning attention over to the men’s team, 2021 U.S. all-around champion Brody Malone is a favorite to make the team. Also competing for the four spots are two-time Olympian and six-time U.S. all-around champion Sam Mikulak and 2017 U.S. all-around champion Yul Moldauer. A fifth member will be selected to compete as an individual.

It all leads up to the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo, Japan, which will take place July 23-Aug. 8.
