It’s always one of the highlights of the US Olympic team. Heroes and heroines always come from the gymnastics team, which is one of our most cherished sports. Simone Biles will be leading our charges to hopeful glory, but who will be qualifying her with her on July 8 at 9pm EST.
We always look forward to this one! The gymnastics team always shine at the Olympics, and represent our best hopes for gold at Rio 2016. Simone Biles, 19, has led the way winning every single gymnastics competition she’s entered this year, so all eyes will be on her. But who else will qualify for the Olympics? Click down for the live stream to find out!
Split over two days of qualifying, Simone is likely to be selected regardless of whether or not she impresses at the trials. Special athletes get a bit of leeway when it comes to qualifying, so she will be at Rio anyway, barring an injury.
As well as Simone, housewives favorite Gabby Douglas is also favored to make the team having finished second behind her rival at the World Championships in 2015. Aly Raisman is another one tipped for glory, we really are spoiled for choice with our gymnasts.
The event takes place at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. The competition will be spread over two days, with four events on day one and four more events on day two. It really will test the best of the best.
