Come this winter, Olympic silver medalist Grace McCallum is expected to compete for the University of Utah’s women’s gymnastics team.

Before that, though, she is going to tour the country.

The Gold Over America Tour announced Thursday morning that McCallum and fellow U.S. Olympian Jade Carey have joined the post-Olympics showcase, which already boasted Simone Biles, Jordan Chiles and former Utah star MyKayla Skinner.

“I am thrilled to be joining Athleta Presents Gold Over America Tour!” McCallum wrote on Instagram. “Can’t wait to be a part of this team!”

All but one U.S. Olympian from the Tokyo Olympics — all-around champion Sunisa Lee — is slated to participate in the tour. Laurie Hernandez, a two-time medalist in the 2016 Olympics, will be on the tour, as will former world champion Morgan Hurd and former UCLA standouts Katelyn Ohashi and Peng Peng Lee.

McCallum and Skinner, as well as Carey and Chiles, are expected to complete the entire tour, per Biles, which runs from Sept. 21 to Nov. 7.

The tour, which is advertised as “a celebration of powerful female athletes who, together, are a united force proudly representing the sport of women’s gymnastics and inspiring the next generation of female athletes,” will make stops in 35 cities, beginning in Tucson, Arizona, before winding its way to Boston.
