Jade Carey has long been a lock to head to Tokyo for the Olympics, but now it's official.

The Oregon State signee will represent the United States as an individual at the Olympics, U.S.A. Gymnastics officially announced following Olympic Trials on Sunday.

Prior to the Olympic Trials, Carey had already secured a trip to Tokyo as an individual thanks to her performance at various World Cup competitions between 2018 and 2019. Carey earned a gold medal on vault and floor at both the 2019 FIG Individual Apparatus World and the 2019 FIG World Cup.

Carey posted on her Instagram earlier this month that she intended to accept the invitation when it was officially offered.

This past weekend at the Olympic Trials, Carey scored a 15.200 on vault, a 13.433 on beam, and a 13.733 on bars.

Going as an individual means that the USA will have six competitors officially in Tokyo.

The Tokyo Olympics start on July 23rd, with gymnastics events scheduled for July 25th.

Carey signed an NLI with Oregon State in 2017, and is expected to join the Beavers for the 2022 season.
