The likes of Laurie Hernandez and Morgan Hurd will be out of action in the US Olympic Gymnastics Trials 2021 as they fail to make it to the list of the final 18 participants. USA Gymnastics announced the participants in the men's and women's categories after the national championship concluded on Sunday.

Laurie Hernandez began her senior career in 2016 and was a part of the USA women's team that won the gold medal in Rio. She also clinched a silver medal on the balance beam with a score of 15.333, ahead of bronze-medallist Simone Biles.

Hernandez had to withdraw from the Nationals as she hyper-extended her knees in a balanced beam warm-up on Friday.

Morgan Hurd began her senior career in 2017 and won gold and silver medals in the all-around and balance beam competitions respectively at the World Championships in Montreal.

A year later in Doha, she was a part of the USA team that clinched the gold medal in the World Championships. Hurd also won silver and bronze medals in the floor exercise and all-around competitions respectively.
