University of Utah gymnasts of the past and present, McCallum and Skinner will be reunited Saturday at the U.S. Classic, along with their U.S. Olympic alternate teammate Kara Eaker.
Eaker, McCallum and Skinner will not be competing in the U.S. Classic, which is “the penultimate domestic event of the year” and the final chance for gymnasts to qualify for the 2022 U.S. Gymnastics Championships.

It will be the first time the Olympians will be together since the middle of the NCAA gymnastics season earlier this year, when all three were honored by Utah alongside past Olympians who’d gone through the program.
The senior women’s session of the U.S. Classic will take place Saturday night at 5 p.m. MT and will feature many of the best elite gymnasts in the country — prospective 2024 Paris Olympians among them — including current Florida Gators standout Leanne Wong, a U.S. Olympic alternate herself and a club teammate of Eaker’s.
Other additional competitors include Ciena Alipio (Midwest Gymnastics Center), Charlotte Booth (Brandy Johnson’s), Amelia Disidore (GAGE), Addison Fatta (Prestige Gymnastics), Shilese Jones (Ascend Gymnastics Center), Levi Jung-Ruivivar (Twin City Twisters), Lauren Little (Everest Gymnastics), Nola Matthews (Airborne), Marissa Neal (GAGE), Brooke Pierson (WOGA), Joscelyn Roberson (North East Texas Elite) and Katelyn Rosen (Twin City Twisters).
