MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WDVM) – All eyes were on the final night of the U.S. women’s gymnastics Olympic trials Sunday, especially in Montgomery County.

Kayla DiCello, of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, was representing the D.C. area, competing for a spot in the Olympics. After a solid performance in St. Louis, Missouri at the trials, DiCello, the 17-year-old rising senior from Northwest high school, is headed to Tokyo as the team’s first alternate.

DiCello first got her start in gymnastics when she was two years old at Hill’s Gymnastics in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Born in 2004, DiCello was the youngest participant at this year’s trials.
