USA Gymnastics has announced today that uneven bars national champion Riley McCusker has withdrawn from the 2017 World Championships Selection Camp due to injury. The camp is scheduled for 18-22 September at the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center. At the end of it, four gymnasts and an alternate will be named to represent the USA at the World championships in Montreal on 2-8 October 2017.

McCusker competed at the 2017 P&G Championships last August with slightly downgraded routines, as she was coming back from another injury. She still managed to win a gold medal on bars, a silver on beam and a bronze in the all around.

Nine women will attend the Selection Camp next week: Jade Carey, Jordan Chiles, Margzetta Frazier, Emily Gaskins, Morgan Hurd, Ashton Locklear, Alyona Shchennikova, Ragan Smith and Trinity Thomas.
