Jul 22 2021 - 12:45pm

Women's artistic gymnastics at the Olympics will, without a doubt, be a true highlight of the Tokyo Games, with athletes representing Team USA leading the charge. Ahead of their qualification round on Sunday, July 25, the four-person US squad [1] and individual athletes Jade Carey [2] and MyKayla Skinner [3] completed podium training (an official precompetition practice) while sporting jewel-covered leotards [4]. We'll know after that round which two athletes out of those six could make it into each event final for vault, bars, beam, and floor as well as the all-around final. Additionally, we'll see if the US is one step closer to adding onto its two-time Olympic team gold streak. If all goes as planned, these women will qualify through to the team final [5] and come home with the win.

Keep scrolling for a glimpse into podium training on July 22, including group images from the session and more.
