No American gymnast has won more all-around national championships than Simone Biles’ eight.
And this weekend, she hopes to make it nine.

Biles will be the headliner at the U.S. gymnastics championships in Fort Worth, Texas this week — the last and most significant competition before the U.S. Olympic trials at the end of next month. The start of the Paris Olympics is now less than two months away.

Biles, 27, won the all-around national title last year and is a safe bet to make the Olympic team regardless of her performance this weekend. The event carries more significance for the women hoping to join her, including regining Olympic gold medalists Suni Lee (all-around) and Jade Carey (floor exercise), among many others. Gabby Douglas, the 2012 all-around Olympic champion, will not be competing after announcing her withdrawal Wednesday.

The U.S. championships will also be a pivotal event for the men, where Brody Malone, Fred Richard, Yul Moldauer and Asher Hong are among those trying to position themselves for Olympic team inclusion.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 2024 U.S. gymnastics championships.

When are the 2024 U.S. gymnastics championships?
The U.S. championships will run from Thursday to Sunday at Dickies Arena, located a few miles west of downtown Fort Worth. The senior men will compete Thursday night and Saturday night, with the women in action Friday and Sunday.

Unlike the Olympics, where there are separate all-around and apparatus finals, the national championships will consist of two all-around sessions in each gender. More than 50 athletes will also be competing in the junior competition.
