Asian American gymnast Kayla Dicello placed third on balance beam at the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Championships on Sunday night.
The 18-year-old Olympic alternate was in fourth place in the all-around heading into Day 2 of the championships last night. She finished in fourth place with an overall score of 110.95, according to NBC Sports. She placed third on balance beam with a total score of 27.35.
Dicello’s performance earned her a spot on the U.S. senior national team, meaning she will likely compete for the U.S. at the 2022 World Championships.
Leanna Wong shared the gold medal with Shilese Jones on bars. It is her first U.S. Senior National event title, according to Florida Gators.
Dicello and Wong will start school at the University of Florida in just a few days. They will compete for the Gators in NCAA gymnastics this winter.
