Meet MyKayla Skinner, the Olympic Gymnast Who Is Now Competing In the Vault Final as Simone Biles Withdraws

In 2016, Skinner was named an alternate to the Olympic team despite finishing fourth all-around at Trials. She was also the alternate to the World Championships team in 2019. After a clutch performance at this year’s Olympic Trials—including a must-hit vault—Skinner earned one of the US’s two individual event specialists. Despite a clean showing during the qualifying round in Tokyo, she originally did not advance to the vault final due to two teammates, Simone Biles and Jade Carey, placing ahead of her. However, since Biles decided to withdraw from the vault final on Friday, July 30, Skinner will now compete vault, providing her with one last shot to fulfill her dream of an Olympic medal.
