US Women's Olympic Gymnastics Team Will Officially Vie For Gold in Next Week's Final
After an exciting (and surprising) preliminary round for women's artistic gymnastics at the Tokyo Olympics, we now know which athletes from the United States will make it into the event and all-around finals for a chance to earn a medal — and we know that Team USA's four-person squad will be competing in the July 27 team final for their opportunity to bring home the country's third consecutive Olympic gold.
The gymnasts were split into five subdivisions — the US athletes were in subdivision three — and the top eight teams, 24 all-around gymnasts, and eight women on each event solidified their place in the finals. There is a two-per-country limit where, if three gymnasts from the same nation were to land in the top eight on bars, for instance, only the two with the highest scores would move through to the final. This goes for every event and the all-around final as well.
Ahead, check out the qualification results for the American women and when to watch the finals to come.
