2022 U.S. Gymnastics Championships TV, live stream schedule

2 Comments

The U.S. Gymnastics Championships air live on NBC Sports, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA and Peacock from Thursday through Sunday, featuring the return of Olympic medalists Jade Carey and Jordan Chiles.

All four senior sessions — two days each for men and women — air live at 7 p.m. ET from Tampa, Florida.

Gymnasts are bidding for spots on the team for the world championships in Liverpool, Great Britain, in October and November. The five-person men’s and women’s teams will be finalized at October selection camps.

Carey, the Olympic floor exercise champion, and Chiles, an Olympic team silver medalist, can become the first U.S. female Olympians to make the following year’s world championships team since McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross in 2013. Nationals marks Carey’s and Chiles’ first elite competition since the Tokyo Games, though both competed collegiately this past winter.

The women’s field also includes 2021 World all-around silver and bronze medalists Leanne Wong and Kayla DiCello, plus Konnor McClain, who won the Winter Cup in February.

Simone Biles will miss nationals for the first time since 2017. Biles has not decided whether she will return for a 2024 Olympic run. Suni Lee, the Tokyo Olympic all-around champion, will not return to elite competition until 2023 at the earliest.

The men’s field features three of the five Olympic team members. Defending national all-around champion Brody Malone is joined by Yul Moldauer and Shane WiskusSam Mikulak, who competed at every nationals from 2012 through 2021 (with six all-around titles), and Alec Yoder retired.

The U.S. men’s all-around champion qualifies for the world team. The all-around runner-up qualifies if he is also top three on two individual events. The rest of the men’s team and the entire women’s team are named after the October selection camps.

Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge broke his own world record in winning the Berlin Marathon, clocking 2:01:09 to lower the previous record time of 2:01:39 he set in the German capital in 2018.

Kipchoge, 37 and a two-time Olympic champion, earned his 15th win in 17 career marathons to bolster his claim as the greatest runner in history over 26.2 miles.

His pacing was not ideal. Kipchoge slowed over the second half, running 61:18 for the second half after going out in 59:51 for the first 13.1 miles. He still won by 4:49 over Kenyan Mark Korir.

Ethiopian Tigist Assefa won the women’s race in 2:15:37, the third-fastest time in history. Only Brigid Kosgei (2:14:14 in Chicago in 2019) and Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25 in London in 2003) have gone faster.

American record holder Keira D’Amato, who entered as the top seed, was sixth in 2:21:48.

The last eight instances the men’s marathon world record has been broken, it has come on the pancake-flat roads of Berlin. It began in 2003, when Kenyan Paul Tergat became the first man to break 2:05.

The world record was 2:02:57 — set by Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 — until Kipchoge broke it for the first time four years ago. The following year, Kipchoge became the first person to cover 26.2 miles in under two hours, doing so in a non-record-eligible showcase rather than a race.

Kipchoge’s focus going forward is trying to become the first runner to win three Olympic marathon titles in Paris in 2024. He also wants to win all six annual World Marathon Majors. He’s checked off four of them, only missing Boston (run in April) and New York City (run every November).
