Team USA Set For Junior Pan American Championships

Team USA is set to compete at the Junior Pan American Championships this week in Buenos Aires. The men's and women's competition will be held June 13-15 and consists of a team competition as well as individual all-around and event competitions.

USA women competing are Jordan Bowers, JaFree Scott, Tori Tatum, and Leanne Wong and the U.S. men's team is made up of Brandon Briones, Taylor Burkhart, JR Chou, and Isaiah Drake. Lilly Lippeatt is the women's non-traveling alternate and Joshua Karnes is the men's alternate.

Bowers, from Solid Rock Gymnastics, recently made her international debut at the Pacific Rim Championships where she took gold all-around and helped USA claim the team title. 

For Scott, Tatum, and Wong, this meet will be their first international assignment as part of Team USA. Tatum competed at the City of Jesolo Trophy this year in March where she placed seventh all-around, representing her club team Twin City Twisters. Scott and Wong are both from GAGE where they are coached by Al Fong and Armine Barutyan.

The organizers are expected to provide a live stream of the competition on their YouTube page here.

Letter To Membership From USA Gymnastics Board Chair Karen Golz

Below is a letter from USA Gymnastics board chair Karen Golz about Kerry Perry resigning as CEO and president of USA Gymnastics, via USAGym.

Dear USA Gymnastics Community:I am writing to tell you that USA Gymnastics President and CEO Kerry Perry informed our Board of Directors last night that she will resign effective immediately. On behalf of the board, I want to thank Kerry for her leadership under very difficult circumstances. As you know, USA Gymnastics has been in the midst of a difficult and painful transition to ensure that the safety and interests of our athletes remain at the heart of our mission. While much as been accomplished over the past several months to stabilize the organization, we still face tremendous challenges as we all work to achieve fundamental changes to move our sport forward. We look forward to bringing in new leadership to build on the progress to date, and the board will immediately begin the search for an interim CEO. In the meantime, it has established a management committee to provide organizational oversight to maintain continuity in the day-to-day operations until an interim CEO is named. Additionally, the board is in the process of forming a search committee made up of board members, as well as athletes and others from the gymnastics and NGB community, to find our next permanent leader. Board member and Olympian Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera, will chair the committee. We will keep you informed as we work through our urgent leadership issues. I want to assure you that this board is determined to take the necessary steps to support a safe and competitive environment where every athlete can grow, learn life lessons, have fun and succeed. We know the last few years have been very difficult for everyone involved with USA Gymnastics, and we thank you for your patience and support through these challenging days. The athletes, parents, coaches, judges, volunteers, gym owners and USA Gymnastics staff are the heart and soul of USA Gymnastics, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that our athletes and everyone involved with our great sport and movement achieve their fullest potential. Sincerely,Karen GolzChair, Board of DirectorsUSA Gymnastics
