Simone Biles and Gabby Douglas open Olympic gymnastics team selection season at the Secret U.S. Classic, live on NBC Sports Live Extra on Saturday night.
Biles, the three-time World all-around champion, and Douglas, the Olympic all-around champion, are expected to compete on two of four events at the Hartford, Conn., tune-up meet for the P&G Championships in three weeks and the U.S. Olympic Trials in five weeks.
The five-woman Olympic team will be named after trials. Biles and Douglas are favorites for Rio given they were the world’s two best gymnasts in 2015.
Also competing on Saturday is three-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman, who is slated to do all four events in Hartford, making her the all-around favorite.
Gymnastics competition continues in Hartford on Sunday, with the final day of the P&G Men’s Championships, the first of two Olympic men’s selection meets.
Donnell Whittenburg leads after the first day, eyeing his first U.S. all-around title.
NBC Sports Live Extra will have coverage of the men from 1-4 p.m. ET on Sunday.
