Simone Biles and the rest of the US women were in fine form at World’s podium training today. Check out the video below to see how the women are doing.

Some programming notes -

1. The official team has not been announced. Based on the lineups for training, looks like Reagan Smith is the alternate, but we will know officially when the US files its lineup for qualifications, I guess.

2. Simone is DEFINITELY going to compete her new vault. If she successfully completes it in competition, it will be named after her.

Just to give you an idea of Simone’s difficulty in vault, she used her Cheng vault from the Olympics as a WARM UP vault before finally debuting the Biles in podium training.

Only a little more than a year and a half to the Olympics. Everything starts heating up now!
