The team was selected based on the Selection Camp results, among other factors. What are these “other factors”, you may ask? USA Gymnastics has published their selection procedures for this competition. To summarize the selection procedures, the selection committee uses the results from any/all of the competitions the gymnasts have competed in, along with D-scores (difficulty scores), E-scores (execution scores), and consistency of the gymnasts’ performances. Using these measures, the team is selected to maximize the potential for Team, All-Around, and Individual Event medals at World Championships.
The 2019 World Championships will take place from October 4-13, 2019 in Stuttgart, Germany. Check back for updates during and after the competition!
