Things Are About to Heat Up In Hartford | 2024 Core Hydration Classic | + Schedule


LAST THREE OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS LEAD LEGENDARY LIST OF REGISTRANTS FOR 2024 CORE HYDRATION CLASSIC

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 6, 2024) – For the first time in history, a gymnastics competition is expected to see three Olympic all-around gold medalists compete head-to-head as Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles and Suni Lee all have registered to compete at the 2024 Core Hydration Classic May 17-18 in Hartford, Connecticut. Elite seniors will compete Saturday, May 18.

The 2024 Core Hydration Classic starts the process for 2024 Olympic Team qualifying in earnest, serving as the final opportunity for women for women’s artistic athletes to qualify to the 2024 Xfinity U.S. Championships May 30-June 2 in Fort Worth, Texas. At the championships, the National Team roster that will compete at the Olympic Trials June 27-30 in Minneapolis will be chosen.

It all starts in Hartford, which has the potential to see the most accomplished women’s field ever assembled.

ALL-TIME GREATS, LEGENDARY FIELD

Collectively, the gold-medal trio have won the last three Olympic all-around competitions, with Douglas taking gold in 2012, Biles winning in 2016 and Lee standing as the reigning champion from 2021. Combined, the three have won 13 Olympic medals, eight of them gold.

Never before have three all-around gold medalists graced the floor at the same meet, but they will not be alone in the star power registered for Hartford. In total, the registrant list includes 13 Olympic, World Championships and/or Pan American Games medalists. Tokyo Olympic floor champion and 2022 World Championships vault gold medalist Jade Carey is coming off of wins in the all-round and on floor at the American Classic on April 27 as she returns to elite form. Biles, six-time World Championships medalist Shilese Jones, three-time World medalist Leanne Wong, and Olympic and World medalist Jordan Chiles all look to make their 2024 elite debuts in Hartford.

The star-studded entry list doesn’t end there. Also registered are two-time World medalist Skye Blakely; World team champions Joscelyn Roberson, Lexi Zeiss and Kayla DiCello, who also is the 2023 Pan Am Games all-around and team gold medalist; Pan Am floor and team champion Kaliya Lincoln, and Pan Am team champion Tiana Sumanasekera. The 2022 U.S. all-around champion, Konnor McClain, also has registered for her first elite competition since she won that title, having competed and won an NCAA team title at LSU this season.
