USA World Championship Team Announced

The wait is finally over for the ladies of team USA.

After two selection camps and nearly two months of waiting, USA Gymnastics has announced their World Championship team competing in Glasgow, Great Britain in a couple of weeks. The seven woman team is comprised of nearly all veterans. The seven include two returning Olympians, a world champion and an NCAA standout.

Without further adieu, they are:

Brenna Dowell
Simone Biles
Aly Raisman
Gabby Douglas
Madison Kocian
Maggie Nichols
MyKayla Skinner

The non-traveling alternates are Bailie Key and Alyssa Baumann. 

The World Championships will be held in Glasgow, Great Britain, Oct. 23- Nov. 1. Full schedule and details will follow at a later date.

Congratulations to the girls who made the team and to all the talented athletes even in contention for a spot on the team.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
