With the start of the 2015 P&G Artistic Gymnastics Championships on Thursday, the “Countdown to Rio” begun in earnest for the USA’s top male and female gymnasts when they begun their quest for this year’s national titles and national team berths: It's officially a three-peat for Simone BILES, who on Aug. 15 secured the all-around title. After a less-than-stellar day one that saw her sitting in just third place after two rotations, the 18-year old rebounded and dominated on day two, taking her third straight title by nearly five full points. She is without doubt the one to watch as the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio draw near.
