For nearly a decade, one name has been synonymous with greatness in gymnastics: Simone Biles. Widely considered the greatest gymnast of all time, the five-time Olympic medalist will have an opportunity to clinch a spot on the U.S. Gymnastics team for Tokyo during the Olympic trials, which begin Thursday for the men and Friday for the women.

At the recent U.S. championships, Biles won her seventh national all-around title by a margin of nearly five points and earned the top scores on vault, beam and floor. Should the 24-year-old defend her Olympic title in Tokyo, she will be the first woman in more than 50 years to repeat as all-around champion.  

When are the gymnastics trials?

The U.S. Gymnastics Olympics trials will be held June 24-27 where each athlete will compete over one of four sports on both teams. Biles and the rest of the women will compete June 25 and 27. The selection committee will also select up to five alternates for both men and women for the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
