Olympic gold medalist Jade Carey (Oregon State University) and silver medalist Jordan Chiles (World Champions Centre) are set to return to the elite stage next week as they headline the 2022 OOFOS U.S. Gymnastics Championships from August 18-21 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

The 2022 OOFOS U.S. Gymnastics Championships feature the country’s top artistic gymnasts competing in the finale of the domestic season, with athletes vying for titles in men’s and women’s junior and senior divisions. Champions will be determined based on combined two-day totals, and the USA Gymnastics National Teams will be named at the event’s conclusion.

“We are excited to bring our first national championships of the new Olympic cycle to Tampa,” USAG Chief Programs Officer Stefanie Korepin said. “The sport’s landscape has seen a tremendous amount of change and opportunity over the last 12 months, and we are already less than two years away from the Paris Games. With returning Olympians, exciting breakout stars, and a bonus system in place to incentivize high difficulty in the men’s competition, this year’s OOFOS U.S. Gymnastics Championships will be more competitive than ever.”

Gymnastics Now will be on-site in Tampa bringing readers live coverage all week long, including previews, live blogs, recaps, photo galleries, video, and more.

Carey, Chiles lead strong women’s field

After both Carey and Chiles enjoyed successful freshman seasons in the NCAA, the 2020 Olympians return with less than two years to go until the 2024 Olympic Games open in Paris. They’ll be joined by Olympic alternates Kayla DiCello (Hill’s Gymnastics) and Leanne Wong (GAGE), with the latter adding world all-around silver medalist and U.S. Classic all-around champion to her resume in the past year.

With Simone Biles, the reigning U.S. all-around champion, still on an extended post-Olympic hiatus, the women will crown a first-time champion. Other contenders include reigning Winter Cup and City of Jesolo Trophy all-around champion Konnor McClain (WOGA), U.S. Classic uneven bars champion and all-around silver medalist Shilese Jones (Ascend), first-year senior and 2021 U.S. junior all-around champion Katelyn Jong (Metroplex), and Pan American Championships all-around bronze medalist Skye Blakely (WOGA).

Young talent to challenge veterans in men’s field

After a successful inaugural men’s competition at the U.S. Classic, Olympian and world high bar bronze medalist Brody Malone (Stanford) will look to defend his 2021 title and build off his impressive all-around win in Utah. Olympians Yul Moldauer (5280) and Shane Wiskus (USOPTC) join him, with the former eyeing a return to the top, domestically, after winning the 2017 title. World medalist Donnell Whittenburg (Salto) is a strong contender for multiple titles, including the all-around, after posting the top scores on still rings and vault last month.

There are plenty of newcomers eyeing a breakthrough in the men’s field, including first-year seniors Asher Hong (Cypress) and Fred Richard (MEGA) and college standouts Colt Walker (Stanford) and Khoi Young (Stanford). 2021 world champion on pommel horse Stephen Nedoroscik (Penn State) will compete for just the second time since his gold medal performance in Kitakyushu, Japan, last fall.

Juniors give exciting glimpse into the future

The junior divisions are loaded with up-and-coming talent, including reigning Winter Cup all-around champion David Shamah (WOGA) and Kai Uemura (Lakeshore Academy). On the women’s side, junior Pan American Championships all-around gold medalist Dulcy Caylor (World Champions Centre) and silver medalist Tiana Sumanasekera (West Valley) are already making names for themselves in a field riddled with potential.
