National Team Camp: May 2018

This week marked the first national team camp since November of 2017 is being held in Crossville, Tennessee at the FlipFest Gymnastics Camp. This marks the return to camp of reigning Olympic all around champion, Simone Biles. Athletes selected for the Junior Pan Am Games will be verifying full routines well other athletes complete half sets. There has been much drama surrounding this camp, with members of the USA Gymnastics Organization being asked to leave. Many athletes showed support on the incident through social media early in the week before being asked to delete the posts by an NCAA coach. Junior elite, Konnor McClain’s mom provided that the athletes did not train for the evening after finding out about the let go of Senior Vice President, Rhonda Fahen.
