Carey Places Eighth in All-Around
CORVALLIS – Future Oregon State gymnast Jade Carey placed eighth in the All-Around finals at the Tokyo Olympics Thursday morning.
Carey posted a score of 54.199. She started her day with a mark of 15.200 on vault, the second-best score of the competition. She ended the final with a 13.966 on the floor exercise – the third-best mark of the day.
Carey also qualified for the Olympic finals in both the vault and the floor exercise, finishing second and third in those events during qualification. She will compete in the final for the vault at 1 a.m. PT on Aug. 1. The floor final will be held at 1 a.m. PT on Aug. 2.
Carey punched her ticket to Tokyo via individual qualification. She earned her place with impressive performances at four World Cup competitions between 2018 and 2019. Her accomplishments over that stretch were highlighted by gold-medal performances on vault and floor at both the 2019 FIG Individual Apparatus World in Baku, Azerbaijan and the 2019 FIG World Cup in Doha, Qatar.
Carey signed a National Letter of Intent with the Beavers in the fall of 2017, and is expected to join the OSU gymnastics program in time for the 2022 season.
