Jordan Chiles will be deferring attendance at UCLA until 2020, she told Inside Gymnastics in a recent interview.
Chiles is aiming to compete at this year’s Worlds competition as well as next year’s Olympic Trials, which is why she is putting off college for one more year.
Although Jordan will not be attending UCLA this fall, she will be cheering on her future teammates while she continues training elite.
Chiles has received sponsorship requests from different companies, but she said she really wants to compete for the Bruins, so she is maintaining her NCAA eligibility. She said she can’t wait to compete with the Bruins as a team and have the support of her teammates behind her.
