Simone Biles participates in the United States Gymnastics World Team Selection Camp: Live updates and analysis

There is one more chore for the US ladies to complete before they depart for the international gymnastics championships, which begin next week in Antwerp, Belgium.

The two-day selection camp to choose the six gymnasts for the United States travel squad begins Tuesday night,

and the gymnast with the highest all-around score at the end of Day 1 automatically secures a seat. Let's face it: that's almost certainly Simone Biles.

Last month, the 19-time world champion won her record eighth U.S. gold by nearly four points, a staggering margin in a sport where gymnasts are frequently separated by tenths of a point.

No other American comes close to Biles as long as she is healthy. The final five gymnasts on the traveling squad will be announced Wednesday night,

following the second day of competition. Before the world championships begin, the five-person team and alternate will be announced.

The women's team is in a qualifying session on October 1, with the team final on October 4.

Throughout the evening, USA TODAY Sports will give the most recent information, highlights, and commentary. Continue reading.

Midway through the meet, there was a scoring error that temporarily impacted the standings.

The neutral deductions made on the floor exercise were added to the points rather than subtracted from them.
