Simone Biles competes at the U.S. Classic on July 21, 2019 in Louisville, Ky.
It was another stellar week for Team USA athletes. Jordan Wilimovsky joined Haley Anderson and Ashley Twichell on the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team, Nathan Adrian and Caeleb Dressel stole the show at FINA World Championships and archer Brady Ellison took home bronze at the Olympic test event in Tokyo. Oh, and we can’t forget about Simone Biles bringing home another U.S. Classic title.
2. Beach volleyball duo Kelly Claes and Sarah Sponcil proved they're gunning for a place in Tokyo after they snagged silver at the World Tour 4-Star Tournament in Espinho, Portugal.
3. Brady Ellison is on a roll. Ellison continued his amazing season by securing a bronze medal at the World Archery Ready Steady Tokyo Test Event.
Making The Team
4. Watch out, world! Open water swimmer Jordan Wilimovsky became Team USA's first male athlete to make the Tokyo 2020 roster after an outstanding performance at FINA World Championships.

I’m stoked to be qualified for the 2020 Olympic Games! Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to representing the Stars and Stripes again in Tokyo! Do you think I should rock the stash again in Tokyo? Now for a little rest until the pool competition starts next week. #TeamUSA @usaswimming
