Incoming freshman McCallum earned a berth as a member of the four-gymnast Team USA squad, while Skinner collected her Olympic berth as an individual. Lastly, incoming freshman Kara Eaker heads to Tokyo as an alternate to round out the three Utes.
  • Plus, rest and relaxation are essential for pro athletes, and this year, they’ll be snoozing in style in Tokyo.

She shared the exciting announcement on Instagram and reflected on her family’s special connection to the international games.
  • And Gerber fans you have a new adorable baby face to coo over! Gerber’s 2021 baby is a Florida infant with an infectious laugh and inspiring story. Erin Kahin is a breast cancer survivor who told NBC’s “Today” show she was once unsure she would be able to conceive naturally after she had undergone a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. To her doctor’s surprise, she did conceive, and now her 4-month-old boy, Zane, is not only the winner of this year’s Gerber Photo Search but also given a title no other Gerber baby has had: chief growing officer.
