STUTTGART, Germany, Oct. 3, 2019 – U.S. Women’s National High-performance Team Coordinator Tom Forster has announced the five women who will compete for the United States at the 2019 World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, Oct. 4-14. Forster has designated MyKayla Skinner of Gilbert, Ariz./Desert Lights Gymnastics, as the alternate for the championships.

“This is never an easy decision to make, and this time it is especially difficult because every gymnast on the team can contribute on multiple events,” said Forster. “MyKayla is doing an incredible job with her training and is an important member of this team.”

The women’s line-up for the qualification round on Oct. 5 will be determined prior to the deadline for submission. The five women who will be competing are: Simone Biles of Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre; Jade Carey of Phoenix, Ariz./Arizona Sunrays; Kara Eaker of Grain Valley, Mo./Great American Gymnastics Express; Sunisa Lee of St. Paul, Minn./Midwest Gymnastics Center; and Grace McCallum of Isanti, Minn./Twin City Twisters
