NBC Olympics continues its extensive coverage of the U.S. Olympic Trials with live coverage of the women's gymnastics and track and field competitions this weekend across NBC, NBCSN, NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app.

NBC Olympics presents primetime coverage of the U.S. Olympic Women's Gymnastics Trials from San Jose tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. Coverage continues this Sunday, July 10, at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.

NBC's coverage will be streamed on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app.

The field for the women's gymnastics trials is led by Simone Biles, who comes off her fourth straight U.S. all-around title. Biles looks to make her Olympic debut in Rio on the heels of three consecutive world all-around championship titles (2013-15). She will be joined by 2012 Olympic individual all-around gold medalist Gabby Douglas, and Aly Raisman, who earned the 2012 Olympic gold medal for floor exercise. Douglas and Raisman were a part of the "Fierce Five" U.S. women's gymnastics squad that took home the team gold medal in London. 

Contenders also include Laurie Hernandez, who finished third in the all-around at the 2016 P&G Championships, and two women who won the team title with the U.S. at the 2015 World Championships: Madison Kocian, who is also the reigning world champion on uneven bars, and Maggie Nichols.

NBC Sports Group's gymnastics team of play-by-play voice Al Trautwig, two-time Olympic medalist and analyst Tim Daggett, 2008 Olympic all-around champion and analyst Nastia Liukin, and reporter Andrea Joyce will host coverage of the women's gymnastics trials.
