The roster for US Classic is out, and Olympic all-around champions Simone Biles and Suni Lee are both on it! In this breaking news mini-sode, we discuss:
- How remarkable and (nearly) unprecedented it is to have two Olympic AA champions compete together in the same meet
- Are we surprised by Simone’s return? The timing?
- How do Simone’s 2021 routines hold up in the new code of points?
- What Simone could have in common with president Grover Cleveland, and other facts about her return to competition
- How will the end of Suni’s 2023 college season affect expectations for her elite path in 2023?
