Sixty gymnasts from 27 gymnastics clubs across the United States participated in the May Developmental Invite Camp under the direction of 1988 Olympic gold medalist and USA Gymnastics Developmental Team Coordinator Valeri Liukin. The camp was held at the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center at the Karolyi Ranch, an official U.S. Olympic training site. The gymnasts invited to the camp were members of the TOPs Diamond, A and B National Team.
The gymnasts were tested on physical abilities the first night of camp. Annie Gruner of Hill’s Gymnastics earned the highest physical abilities score, followed by Carly Beeman of TIGAR Gymnastics and Payton Harris of M&M Gymnastics in second and third, respectively. The gymnasts were tested on the same physical abilities testing as the National Team and Developmental camps.
Each day the gymnasts trained two times a day. Coaches’ lectures were held after each training session.
