TO START A FOUNDATION TO HELP EXXON REES GET BACK ON THEIR FEET.>>Jennie: U.S.A. GYMNASTICS IS HOSTING ITS FIRST NATIONAL TEAM TRAINING CAMP AHEAD OF THE 2020 OLYMPICS. THE EVENT IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, BUT OUR ANNE MARIE TIERNON IS THERE FOR US AND SHE MET UP WITH SIMONE BILES.>>WE’RE AT THE GYMNASTICS COMPANY ON THE SOUTH SIDE. THE TRAINING IS OVER THE NEXT TWO DAYS AND THE NUMBER ONE QUESTION I’M GETTING FROM ALL OF YOU — IS THIS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC? UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CANNOT COME DOWN. WE WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING AND TELL YOU ABOUT OUR CONVERSATION. WE TALKED WITH 11 ATHLETES TODAY, SO ANXIOUS TO SHOW OFF THEIR SKILLS SINCE THE LAST TIME THEY CAME TOGETHER.>>THEY HAVE BEEN BACK IN THEIR HOME GYMS. THEY GET TO SNOW THE NATIONAL TEAM STAFF WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON.>>TOM FORESTERS TAKING THE ROLE HELD BY MARTA COROLI. WE TALKED SO SIMONE BILES AND SAID, HOW’S IT GOING?>>A LITTLE BIT MORE LAID BACK IN THE BEST WAY BECAUSE WE STILL GET OUR WORK DONE AND STILL EXPECTS A LOT FROM US. I FEEL LIKE WITH MARA, YOU WERE KIND OF SCARED INTO THINGS, INTO PERFECTION. I FEEL LIKE NOW YOU CAN FREELY BE YOURSELF AND IF TOM’S NOT ONTO YOU, YOU’RE ONTO YOURSELF, RATHER THAN BEFORE IT’S LIKE YOU NEED TO TRY YOUR BEST AND IT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH.>>Jennie: CERTAINLY NOT A GOOD FEELING IF YOUR BEST ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH. SEEMED LIKE SIMONE WAS UPBEAT TODAY AND LIKED THE CULTURE. YOU HAVE MORE THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS.>>I DO. I STARTED THE BLOG YESTERDAY. I’LL BE BACK TODAY AND TOMORROW
