Maggie Nichols trains on the balance beam in the women’s #gymnastics U.S. #Olympic team trials training in San Jose. Maggie Nichols looked primed to make the team after a breakthrough 2015 season that culminated with two medals at world championships. But she’ll perform her first all-around competition since tearing her meniscus in April. She has a proven track record of performing in big competitions, but that’s not all that matters if she hopes to compete in #Rio.
“You have to show yourself at this moment,” Nichols said. “You need to show them that you can help Team USA out right now, no matter what you did in the past.”
