2021 US Gymnastics Olympic Trials Live


GYMNASTICS fans are hotly anticipating the Tokyo Olympic games, where they will get to watch their favorite athletes compete on a world stage.

Gymnasts will go head-to-head for the United States Olympic team of six women and five men.

The Olympic trials for gymnastics will be held from June 24-27, 2021.

The men and women will compete in every discipline twice.

The men’s team will open the trials on June 24, then compete again June 26.

The women’s team will perform on June 25 and June 27.

Results are determined by the cumulative scores across both days of competition.

Tokyo Olympics chiefs have confirmed crowds of up to 10,000 will be allowed at next month’s Games.

While overseas supporters have been banned from travelling to Japan, home-based fans have been given the green light.

Overseas fans were banned from attending earlier in 2021 amid safety fears from those in charge.

After a final meeting between the games bosses, Japanese and city authorities announced that attendances at events will be capped at 10,000 or 50 per cent of the venue capacity.

In addition, 20,000 spectators will be allowed to attend the Opening Ceremony in the Olympic stadium on July 23.
