The Internet is going bananas right now after a tweet stated a “For the first time ever, an all black gymnastics team will be representing America in the Olympics.” Which is not true as of yet but could certainly be possible after the Olympic Trials take place later this month.

Eighteen individuals were selected to the U.S. Senior Women’s National Team at the event’s conclusion and will advance to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials later in the month, and USA Gymnastics may name additional gymnasts:

Simone Biles, Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre
Skye Blakely, Frisco, Texas/WOGA Gymnastics
Jade Carey, Phoenix, Ariz./Arizona Sunrays
Jordan Chiles, Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre
Kayla DiCello, Boyds, Md./Hill’s Gymnastics
Amari Drayton, Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre
Kara Eaker, Grain Valley, Mo./Great American Gymnastics Express
Addison Fatta, Wrightsville, Pa./Prestige Gymnastics
Shilese Jones, Westerville, Ohio/Future Gymnastics Academy
Emily Lee, Los Gatos, Calif./West Valley Gymnastics School
Sunisa Lee, St. Paul, Minn./Midwest Gymnastics Center
Emma Malabuyo, Flower Mound, Texas/Texas Dreams
Grace McCallum, Isanti, Minn./Twin City Twisters
Riley McCusker, Brielle, N.J./Arizona Sunrays
Zoe Miller, Spring, Texas, World Champions Centre
Ava Siegfeldt, Williamsburg, Va./World Class Gymnastics
MyKayla Skinner, Gilbert, Ariz./Desert Lights Gymnastics
Leanne Wong, Overland Park, Kan./Great American Gymnastics Express

Simone Biles claimed another spot in the record books Sunday at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, notching a seventh U.S. senior women’s all-around title – the most in history. Biles (119.650) ran away from the competition on Day 2, stretching a 2.2-point lead to nearly five full points. Sunisa Lee of St. Paul, Minn./Midwest Gymnastics Center finished second with a 114.950, and Biles’ World Champions Centre teammate Jordan Chiles (114.450) rounded out the top three. Biles also claimed the top spot on vault (31.025), balance beam (29.250) and floor exercise (29.600). Lee notched the national title on uneven bars with a 30.200.

After the U.S. Olympic Trials are complete then America will find out which gymnast will compete in the Olympics.
