INDIANAPOLIS, June, 24, 2021 – The U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Gymnastics get underway Thursday at The Dome in St. Louis. The trials, which run June 24-27, will feature the country’s top men’s and women’s artistic gymnasts as they vie for the opportunity to represent the U.S. at next month’s Tokyo Olympic Games.
The men’s competition will take place Thursday and Saturday with the women in action Friday and Sunday. The Olympic team will be named at the conclusion of each discipline’s second day of competition.
NBCSN will broadcast men’s Day 1 live Thursday at 6:30 p.m. ET with women’s Day 1 to follow Friday at 7:30 on NBC. The Saturday men’s Day 2 broadcast will begin on The Olympic Channel at 3 p.m. ET and will continue on NBC at 4 p.m. Trials will wrap up with women’s Day 2 Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Live streams of the competitions will be available on NBCOlympics.com. You can also watch on NBC’s Peacock platform.
Single-session tickets are available for each day of competition and can be purchased here.
The men and women will both field four-person teams to Tokyo. In addition, Paul Juda’s performance at the 2021 Senior Pan American Championships earned the men an additional +1 quota spot, ensuring that a fifth U.S. gymnast will be able to compete as an individual in Tokyo. The women will also be able to send up to two individual athletes to compete, in addition to the four-person team, including one +1 country quota spot and a nominative spot unofficially earned by Jade Carey of Phoenix, Ariz./Arizona Sunrays through the FIG’s Apparatus World Cup. Replacement athletes will also be named this weekend in St. Louis.
