US National Championships: Seniors Day 2

The US National Championships will end with the final session for the seniors.

The first night ended with Simone Biles sitting at the top of the leaderboard with a huge 60.1, 3.1 points ahead of Morgan Hurd, sitting in second with a 57.100. Simone was also the top finisher on every event. If she wins every event after night two, she will be the first woman since Dominique Dawes in 1994 to do so.


Will she be the next Dominique Dawes? Will Morgan and Simone be the ones to beat this quad? Find out, follow along. Refresh the page for all the good stuff!
