HUNTSVILLE, Texas, June 6, 2014 – The U.S. Women’s National Team camp for June concluded today at the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center at the Karolyi Ranch, an official U.S. Olympic training site, near Huntsville, Texas.

National team coordinator Martha Karolyi led the five-day camp, which focused on finalizing routine construction for the upcoming season, including new skills and connections, as well as half-routine verification. The athletes are preparing for the second half of the 2014 elite season, which includes the Secret U.S. Classic (Hoffman Estates, Ill., Aug. 2), the P&G Gymnastics Championships (Pittsburgh, Pa., Aug. 21-24), the Senior Pan American Championships (Toronto, Canada, Aug. 29-Sept. 1), and the World Championships (Nanning, China, Oct. 3-12).

2013 World team members Simone Biles of Spring, Texas/ World Champions Centre, Kyla Ross of Aliso Viejo, Calif./Gym-Max and Brenna Dowell of Odessa, Mo./Great American Gymnastics Express, attended the camp. Gabrielle Douglas of Virginia Beach, Va./Chow’s Gymnastics and Dance, attended her first camp since winning two gold medals at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The entire list of participants is included below.

"I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent fitness level of Gabby Douglas at the June National Team camp," said Karolyi. "After reviewing her training for the past five days, I feel with consistent training between now and September, she has a reasonable chance to get back into full shape prior to World Championships."
