Statement from Martha Karolyi, U.S. Women’s National Team coordinator, regarding Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez

The Olympic year is a long one, and we are excited to provide the rest of the team with another important competitive opportunity. We are very proud of the entire team's performance and want to make sure that we keep everyone in their optimal physical condition."
