The United States is sending a full rhythmic gymnastics contingent -- two individuals and a group -- to the Olympics for the first time ever.
The individual quotas were secured when two athletes -- Laura Zeng and Evita Griskenas -- finished in the top 10 in the 2019 World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships all-around final. The duo went on to secure nominative berths with a 1-2 finish at the 2021 USA Gymnastics Championships in June.
While the U.S. did not qualify for an Olympic group quota spot at Worlds, it did so at the 2021 Pan American Championships.
Lili Mizuno, Camilla Feeley, Nicole Sladkov, Isabella Connor, Yelyzaveta Merenzon and Elizaveta Pletneva qualified the Tokyo group quota spot then earned their berths with a win at the national championships.
