Chiles, Frazier, Thomas Confirmed For World Cup Events

Press release via USA Gymnastics:

Following a verification event held earlier today, USA Gymnastics announced the athletes who will represent the United States in three International Gymnastics Federation World Cup events that are part of the all-around series.  USA Gymnastics held a one-day verification event at Louisiana State University’s training facility in Baton Rouge, La.

World Cup assignments
Stuttgart, Germany, March 17-18: Jordan Chiles, Vancouver, Wash./Naydenov Gymnastics
Birmingham, Great Britain, March 21-22: Margzetta Frazier, Erial, N.J./Parkettes National Gymnastics Center
Tokyo, Japan, April 14: Trinity Thomas, York, Pa./Prestige Gymnastics

Frazier is also the alternate for 2018 American Cup in Hoffman Estates, Ill., on March 3.

Kayla DiCello of Boyds, Md./Hill’s Gymnastics, earned a 54.600 in the all-around to qualify U.S. Championships, scheduled for Boston, Aug. 16-19.

A total of 17 women participated in the verification event, which had an informal format that mimicked how verifications were handled in the past year, with the exception that athlete parents, chaperones and collegiate coaches had access to observe the event on site.

In keeping with the verification approach, athletes performed routines in accordance with their competitive goals, which determined if they competed full routines on hard surfaces or semi-hard and/or performed partial routines. The Athlete Selection Committee met to determine athlete selections for events.

The verification event at LSU was open to members of the women’s national team and other rising gymnasts who were invited to participate in the original February national team training camp.
