Despite narrowly missing out on the All-Around gold medal, Kyla Ross proved her worth on uneven bars and balance beam.

With an overall total that was two points more than the closest competitor (Simone Biles), she is without question the strongest even bars worker in the U.S. right now.

And McKayla Maroney didn't do too shabby either, winning gold on her trademark vault event, as well as floor exercise with an upgraded routine.

With such positive results after the 2013 Gymnastics Championships, it is no surprise that both Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney of the Fierce Five have been named to the National Team.

In addition, the newest U.S. all-around champion, Simone Biles is also doing very well for herself, scoring within the top 3 in all the events.

Currently the U.S. women's National Team is comprised of: Kennedy Baker, Simone Biles, Brenna Dowell, Peyton Ernst, Madison Kocian, McKayla Maroney, Maggie Nichols, Elizabeth Price, Lexie Priessman, Kyla Ross, and MyKayla Skinner.

And after further monitoring, six of these gymnasts will be named for the 2013 World Team, with Kyla Ross, McKayla Maroney, and Simone Biles being heavy favorites.

Barring injuries, it appears Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney are looking solid on their comeback trail!

Check out all the results here!
