Bailie Key and Laurie Hernandez to Represent USA Juniors in Japan

USA Gymnastics is sending two promising juniors to the Junior Japan meet in September.


Bailie Key and Laurie Hernandez have been selected to compete at the Junior Japan Competition Sept 22-25. Bailie is the newest junior national champion and Laurie Hernandez took the silver medal in the all-around.


This is Laurie's first international competition.  She's gained lots of exposure stateside for her unique floor routine and artistry. Bailie has represented team USA Gymnastics at the City of Jesolo Cup in 2012 and this past year, where she got a gold in the all-around and on beam and floor.

Congrats to Laurie and Bailie!
