The USA Gymnastics women’s national team is in Katy, Texas, this weekend for one of the most important national team camps of the year.
The camp, which is being held from September 8-11, will include selection for the upcoming Paris and Szombathely World Challenge Cups. In addition, it will serve another assessment ahead of world team selection camp, which is set for October 20-23.
Athletes in attendance include junior and senior national team members, as well as other invited gymnasts.
2021 world all-around bronze medalist Kayla DiCello (Florida) is in attendance this weekend. The college freshman was expected to focus on NCAA following U.S. Championships, but after she finished fourth in the all-around in Tampa, it seems she may make a push for the team.
Notably not in attendance was 2021 world silver medalist and 2022 U.S. Classic champion Leanne Wong (GAGE), who was not named to the national team after withdrawing from the all-around at the U.S. Championships last month. The withdrawal seemed to be precautionary after Wong landed awkwardly on her beam dismount on Day 1.
Additionally, senior Joscelyn Roberson and junior Tiana Sumanasekera did not make the trip to Katy, presumably because both gymnasts formally moved to World Champions Centre to train this week. Roberson was previously at North East Texas Elite. Sumanasekera was at West Valley. Other World Champions gymnasts, including Olympian Jordan Chiles and junior Dulcy Caylor are in attendance.
Up to four gymnasts will be selected to represent the U.S. at each World Challenge Cup on Sunday, September 11. The Paris and Szombathely World Challenge Cups will take place September 24-25 and September 30-October 2, respectively.
