ST. LOUIS — Even the best gymnasts in the world need to practice, and they're doing it in downtown St. Louis this week.
Wednesday morning, gymnastics star Simone Biles and other Olympic hopefuls practiced at The Dome ahead of the Olympic trials.
A 5 On Your Side photojournalist captured video as the gymnasts warmed up and worked on their routines on the uneven bars, balance beam and floor.
Biles arrived in St. Louis Tuesday. She tweeted out a message to her 1.2 million followers showing her sitting across the street from the Arch.
"Can’t believe this week I’ll be competing in my second Olympic Trials. What a dream," the message read.
Though Biles is the most decorated gymnast in the world, she must still earn her spot on the Olympic team. Biles and other Olympic hopefuls will compete at The Dome.
The men's trials begin Thursday and the women's trials begin Friday. If you don't have tickets to watch in person, here's how you can watch on TV and online:
