McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross Arrive In Netherlands For 2013 World Gymnastics Championships With Team USA

By Staff Writer | September 23, 2013 02:14 PM EDT

The 2013 World Gymnastics Championships is just around the corner, and McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Brenna Dowell, and Simone Biles are officially traveling to compete for Team USA.

The 2013 World Gymnastics Championships will go from September 30 to October 6. Meanwhile, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross have landed in the Netherlands on their way to Antwerp, Belgium, where the Championships will be held.

McKayla Maroney in particular have been updating fans with Instagram and Twitter updates, showing off her teammates and the scenery.

McKayla Maroney is expected to compete on vault and floor during these championships for Team USA, while both Kyla Ross and Simone Biles are vying for the all-around title. Brenna Dowell, meanwhile, is expected to compete on balance beam and uneven bars.

Elizabeth Price has been named as a non-traveling alternate.

This year at the 2013 World Gymnastics Championships, no team competition will occur, so only individual event medals and the all-around can be sought after by Team USA.

For Kyla Ross, the competition is steep, and hopefully the promising and clean gymnast has upgraded some of her routines to compete with the likes of Biles and Aliya Mustafina.

Meanwhile, McKayla Maroney will also face heavy competition as a vault specialist, despite her already iconic technique on the Amanar vault.

Check out some of closest competitors on the vault for comparison.

Good luck to Team USA!
