Three Tokyo Olympians dominated the collegiate gymnastics competition on Friday and Saturday, with Suni Lee, Jordan Chiles and Grace McCallum all scoring their inaugural perfect 10s over the weekend.
UCLA’s Chiles and Utah’s McCallum went head-to-head in Friday’s Pac-12 matchup, both earning top scores in their preferred disciplines. McCallum’s high-flying uneven bars routine was jam-packed with difficulty, with the Olympic silver-medalist sticking the landing for her first perfect 10.

During the same meet, Chiles threw down a near-flawless floor exercise to clinch the second perfect score of the night. The 20-year-old’s routine, which features music from Lizzo, caught the attention of the Grammy-winning artists, tweeting at Chiles, “Making Black History in Black History Month! Yesss.”

Lee joined her USA Gymnastics teammates on Saturday, notching a perfect 10 on uneven bars. The all-around Olympic gold medalist’s top score was her first 10 for Auburn, the school’s sixth perfect score and program’s first since 2004. Lee’s uneven bar performance helped her to an all-around score of 39.825, the best so far this year in collegiate gymnastics and a program-tying best for Auburn.
