Grace McCallum, of Isanti, was named to the four-member 2021 U.S. women's gymnastics Olympic team, along with Simone Biles, Sunisa Lee, and Jordan Chiles. She spoke with KSTP Sports about being an Olympian.


McCallum spoke about what it has been like since being named to the team, how crazy the media attention has been, what her training has been like, how she has gotten past a hand injury that resulted in surgery earlier in the year, what she is looking forward to the most, why she chose the University of Utah for college, and how it will be like with no fans at the Olympics.
