Worlds Selection Camp to Begin Monday

The ladies of Team USA will head to the Karolyi Ranch on Monday to decide who will represent the United States at the World Championships in Nanning, China.
According to USA Gymnastics, the selection camp will begin Monday, September 15 with a team announcement on Wednesday, September 17.

The two athletes likely to be a lock on the six girl squad will obviously be last years' world all-around champion and two time national champion, Simone Biles and Kyla Ross, the all-around silver medalist. Also likely to be a lock is Pan American all-around champion, MyKayla Skinner, who not only helped Team USA to a team gold, she took home two additional gold medals on vault and floor exercise. 

Here is the full list of attendees. Maggie Nichols was invited, but per USAG, she sustained a dislocated knee cap at Pan Ams, (ala Rebecca Bross at the 2011 Visa Championships) and will not attend.
