Aly Raisman is training to compete next month, which would mark her first competition since she won three medals at the London 2012 Olympics.

“I am training for [the Jesolo Trophy in] Italy at the end of March,” Raisman said, according to

Jesolo Trophy takes place the final weekend in March. Raisman still must earn her spot on the team for Jesolo Trophy, which will likely be announced following a national team camp earlier in March.

Raisman, 20, also told the website she plans to compete in the Secret Classic, traditionally in July or August, the P&G Championships in August and the World Championships in October and November.

Olympic all-around champion Gabby Douglas, who rejoined the national team along with Raisman in November, is also eligible to be selected for Jesolo Trophy.

Douglas also hasn’t competed since the 2012 Olympics. She said in August that her goal was to return at the Secret Classic but she was open to an earlier international assignment.
