Former Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez explains how people select a team

24 minutes ago

Five more bad guys will soon be chosen, but how? It’s not as simple as achieving the best finish on the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team this week.

Who better to explain this process than Lori Hernandez, who won a silver and gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics and now works as a commentator for NBC.

Hernandez, 24, told PEOPLE at NBC’s Paris World Olympics press event on June 26 that there are “three levels of qualifying that happen.”

First up was the 2024 Core Hydration Gymnastics Classic, which was held in May. “This event prepares you for championships,” Hernandez says. “It was the USA Gymnastics Championships a few weeks ago, we saw Simone [Biles] Winning by six points.”

“These athletes will go on and qualify for the Olympic Trials,” Hernandez explains. “So about 15 or so athletes will be competing there.”

The top two trial winners are automatically included in the Olympic team – but the remaining positions can be “adjusted in any way the Olympic Committee deems appropriate.”

“So the person who comes in fifth doesn’t automatically get into a five-person team, they’re allowed to take the sixth or seventh person and swap them if that’s what they choose,” Hernandez tells PEOPLE, noting that three substitutes have also been selected. For the team.

These athletes then go to training camp, where it is determined who will compete in which events.
