The P&G Gymnastics Championships on NBC isn't just a chance to see some great athletic moves on the gym mat in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania it is a chance to see who might be representing the United States at the next Olympics. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Saturday, the fans at Consol Energy Center were delighted to see who might be the next new face for the sport as the competition played out.

One athlete many fans will be talking about is Jazmyn Foberg. International Gymnast Magazine is reporting that the athlete captured first place in the all-around of the junior women’s competition of the P&G Gymnastics Championships. Her focus on all the events had fans impressed as she revealed no weakness in any of the competition and seemed extremely focused and confident.

On Saturday night the fans of gymnastics are going to see some great athletes take to the mat in a tough competition on NBC. Simone Biles, Kyla Ross and Brenna Dowell are all expected to be part of the women's competition and the cameras will be watching to see how they respond under pressure.

While the championships are one of the biggest events in the country, so far not many of the athletes seen on the previous U.S. Gymnastics team seen at the Olympics are looking to seriously compete. Training privately and waiting to make a debut later on in the year, the athletes currently competing in the Pittsburgh event are young men and women who are setting their sights on getting consideration before the decisions of who makes the team are made. The idea of training for a gold medal might not be a thought for some viewers as it is so far away, but for these young athletes the Olympics is all they think about.
