US Women Head to National Team Training Camp

Posted on January 23, 2011


Several US national team members—including Sacramone, Sloan and Larson—have tweeted about heading to the National Team Training Camp in Houston. The team meets several times a year for verification—a series of mini competitions and assessments.

In the year before the Olympics, many gymnasts are rededicating themselves to the sport in hopes of being a 2012 Olympic team member. Shawn Johnson attended her first camp since 2008 late last year and is continuing to train heading into 2012.

2008 Olympic team member Chellsie Memmel is also back to serious training. She competed beam at the Circle of Stars Invitational this weekend. Gymnastike has an extensive interview with Chellsie and video of her routine.

We’ve also seen this video and this one showing Nastia beginning to train but no official word from her yet about competing or attending any training camps.
