Three of the four U.S. Olympic all-around champions gathered to discuss the AT&T American Cup and Rio Olympics on TODAY on Friday morning.

Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patterson and Nastia Liukin share not only Olympic titles but also American Cup victories in the year they appeared at the Games.

That highlights the importance of Saturday’s AT&T American Cup, where the fourth U.S. Olympic all-around champion, Gabby Douglas, will compete for the first time this year (NBC and NBC Sports Live Extra, 1 p.m. ET).

Retton, Patterson and Liukin were also asked who the U.S.’ biggest competition will be in Rio and who the contenders are to make the five-woman Olympic team.
