Who Is Competing at the 2023 U.S. Gymnastics Championships? Simone Biles, Sunisa Lee
As mentioned earlier, Simone Biles and Suni Lee — the two most recent Olympic all-around gold medalists — headline the women’s field in San Jose. Other women’s contenders include Olympic medalists Jade Carey and Jordan Chiles, plus 2022 World all-around silver medalist Shilese Jones, and Leanne Wong, who recently finished second behind Biles at the 2023 U.S. Classic.
The recently married Biles is looking to become the first competitor of any gender to win eight national all-around titles. At 26, she would also become the oldest U.S. women’s all-around champ in history.
The men’s competition is highlighted by veterans Yul Moldauer, Donnell Whittenburg, Shane Wiskus and Asher Hong, who won the All-Around title at the U.S. Classic.
The female medalists and top female athletes from the U.S. gymnastics nationals will be invited to a September selection camp, where the women’s world team will be announced.
The men’s world team will be chosen by a committee after nationals and named Sunday.
