HISTORY IN THE MAKING
2021 marks the first time St. Louis will hold the Olympic Trials for both men’s and women’s gymnastics. In 2016, Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis was the site of the Olympic Trials for men’s gymnastics. St. Louis also hosted the women’s national championships that year – and previously hosted USA Gymnastics’ national championships in 2000 and 2012. With the 2021 Trials in St. Louis, USA Gymnastics returns to the birthplace of the Olympics in America. It was St. Louis that hosted the 1904 Summer Games – the first Olympics to take place in the Western Hemisphere.
