Beginning Monday, May 25, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA presents some of the most unforgettable moments from the world’s best gymnasts during next week’s primetime 2019 World Championships Week – Gymnastics, continuing the network’s 2019 World Championships Week coverage, which spans a multitude of Olympic and Paralympic sports over the next several weeks.
From Monday, May 25, through Saturday, May 30 (starting at 8 p.m. ET), and Sunday, May 31 (starting at 10 a.m. ET), 2019 World Championships Week – Gymnastics features over 30 hours of programming from the 2019 World Gymnastics Championships from Stuttgart, Germany. Four-time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, two-time Olympian Sam Mikulak, four-time world medalist Jade Carey, three-time world medalist Suni Lee, and 2017 world bronze medalist (floor exercise) Yul Moldauer highlight the competition. Based on the current apparatus World Cup standings, Carey has mathematically clinched an individual spot for next year’s Tokyo Olympics.
The U.S. women’s team finished the 2019 World Gymnastics Championships atop the medal table with eight medals. Considered by many as the greatest gymnast of all time, Biles brought her career total to 25 world medals (including 19 gold), which is the most in gymnastics history for a male or female. Biles also became the first gymnast since 1958 to earn five gold medals at a single world championships. In qualifying, Biles made history debuting two new skills for the first time on the international stage – a double-twisting double back dismount off balance beam and triple-twisting double back on floor exercise.
NBC Sports host and play-by-play announcer Terry Gannon will introduce coverage throughout the week’s gymnastics competitions. Gannon called the event, joined by analysts Tim Daggett (two-time Olympic medalist) and Nastia Liukin (five-time Olympic medalist and 2008 Olympic all-around champion), and reporter Andrea Joyce.
All coverage on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA will stream on OlympicChannel.com and the Olympic Channel app, in addition to NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app. Coverage of Olympic Sports on NBC Sports Group platforms is a presentation of Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA.
