SALT LAKE CITY — There are still a few months remaining before the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, which are slated to be held on June 25-28 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Thus, there are still a few months separating MyKayla Skinner from her stated dream of making the 2020 U.S. Olympic team.

That dream is getting ever closer to reality, though, which Skinner declared to the world in impressive fashion over the weekend.

Skinner was a member of the American contingent that competed in the 2020 Gymnix International Cup, held in Montreal, Canada, from March 4-8. The competition included 1,200 female athletes from 15 countries, including the United States, Australia, Belgium, France and Japan.

It was Skinner’s first international competition since 2016, and she was among the very best in it.

The former University of Utah star won three gold medals, thanks to first-place finishes on floor exercise, vault and uneven bars. She tied for first on bars with Belgium’s Fien Enghels, with a score of 13.766, and was all alone at the top of the standings on floor and vault, with a 14.133 and 14.367, respectively.

In addition to her three individual golds, Skinner won a silver medal with a second-place finish in the all-around competition. She also took home another gold medal, thanks to Team USAs first place finish.

Skinner took to Twitter afterward and thanked everyone who has supported her in her comeback attempt.
