Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman are set to compete for the first time since the London Olympics on Saturday and Sunday in Italy.

Douglas, the Olympic all-around champion, and Raisman, the Olympic floor exercise champion, are part of the U.S. team at the Jesolo Trophy competition.

Raisman said both she and Douglas, her roommate in Italy, are a little nervous in an ESPN article.

“I’ve got a lot of rust to shake off,” Raisman said, according to ESPN. “You’re only as good as your last competition, and without any false modesty, my last meet was a doozy.”

The U.S. roster also includes Olympic teammate Kyla Ross, two-time reigning World all-around champion Simone Biles and more gymnasts in the running to make the six-woman team for the World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, in October.

Douglas, Raisman, Ross and McKayla Maroney, who is not competing, are trying to become the first U.S. women’s artistic gymnasts to make back-to-back Olympic teams since 2000.

USA Gymnastics provided the information on this weekend’s competition:

The Jesolo Trophy senior team and all-around finals are Saturday at 11 a.m. ET. The individual event finals are Sunday at 4:30 a.m. ET.

The meet will be streamed live on the Italian gymnastics federation YouTube channel here.
