The first eight gymnastics spots on the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team will be determined in this week’s USA Gymnastics Championships in Providence, Rhode Island.

Two Olympic spots in trampoline (one male and one female), one in individual rhythmic gymnastics and the five in the rhythmic gymnastics group are up for grabs in the competition in the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, which runs through Sunday. National titles will be held in the elite senior and Junior Olympic levels in trampoline and tumbling, rhythmic and acrobatic gymnastics.

Steven Gluckstein, a 2012 Olympian and five-time national trampoline champion; Logan Dooley, a six-time U.S. synchronized trampoline champion and 2015 U.S. silver medalist; and Charlotte Drury, the first U.S. woman to win a world cup, are among those trying to secure Olympic berths in trampoline.

Laura Zeng, the 2015 Pan American Games champion in all five events and all-around bronze medalist at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games, is among those in the running for the Olympic berth in rhythmic gymnastics.

The six-person U.S. rhythmic gymnastics group will be narrowed down to five for the Olympic team.

The competition opened on Wednesday with Dooley and Gluckstein winning the men’s synchro trampoline title and Shaylee Dunavin and Dakota Earnest winning the women’s title.
