Sportsmen to look at
Simone Biles: The 24-year-old with the same skills in jumping, bar and floor gymnastics can underpin her claim to be the most dominant gymnast of all time with a superlative performance in Tokyo. Biles won gold four times in Rio in 2016 (team, all-around, jump and floor) and one bronze (beam). The record for Olympic medals by an American gymnast is seven, set by Shannon Miller (five in 1992, two in 1996). Biles has been unbeaten in all-around competitions since March 2013.
Suni Lee: She stood out in US studies in June, finishing second behind Biles, but got a higher total score on the second night. The 18-year-old was the best scorer on the bar and on the bar in St. Louis.
Jordan Chile: The 20-year-old finished second on the grid, third on the floor and third in the all-around US trials.
A member of the team tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and went into quarantine. USA Gymnastics said the gymnast is a substitute and another substitute will also be moved to separate facilities.
