St. Louis sports officials are working to keep the U.S. Olympic team trials for gymnastics in the city. The effort comes after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were pushed back a year due to COVID-19.
The four-day trials were scheduled to take place in June at the Enterprise Center in downtown St. Louis.
The International Olympic Committee said Monday that the Tokyo games will take place from July 23 to August 8, 2021.
USA Gymnastics said it was working with the St. Louis Sports Commission to reschedule the trials.
“Barring any scheduling conflicts, we are planning to hold Olympic Trials in St. Louis in 2021,” USA Gymnastics said in a release.
