USA Gymnastics and DOW, a company aimed at sustainability through science and sport, have teamed up to present a monthly award recognizing the achievements of Team USA.
The award recognizes one male athlete, one female athlete, and one team of the month.
The women’s team, which dominated the 2018 Pacific Rim Championship, is among the nominees for April’s award!
The U.S. women’s team from the 2018 Pacific Rim Championships has been nominated for the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Team of the Month for April.
The U.S. women’s team won its 10th straight Pacific Rim Championship this past weekend in Medellin, Colombia, by a 15-point margin. Grace McCallum and 2017 World all-around champion Morgan Hurd finished first and second, respectively, in the senior all-around competition. In the junior meet, Jordan Bowers, and Kayla DiCello also earned gold and silver in the all-around standings. Rounding out the team was Jordan Chiles who was the gold medalist in the senior vault and floor exercise finals, and junior Sunisa Lee who won silver medals in the vault, balance beam and floor exercise.
I think its great that the women’s team has been nominated and is being recognized for all their hard work. They deserve to be rewarded and I hope that they win. Do you think the team deserves to be rewarded?
