INDIANAPOLIS, March 3, 2020 – The U.S. Team of four senior and four junior athletes who will compete in the 2020 Gymnix International in Montreal, Que., from March 6-8 has been selected following the U.S. Women’s National Team training camp last weekend. The event website, which includes a live webcast, is here.

The camp was also a selection camp for the Jesolo (Italy) Trophy International Competition. However, in an abundance of caution, USA Gymnastics has decided not to send athletes to the Jesolo Trophy in Italy in April. The decision not to attend this elective competition will not affect Olympic qualification. Instead, USA Gymnastics intends to provide the following athletes with a competitive opportunity at the National Team Training Center in Indianapolis, April 3-5, 2020.
The members of the U.S. Team who made the team for Jesolo are listed below.
