Chloe Sims not going to Utah after all

Chloe Sims apparently plans to pursue coaching gymnastics instead of competing it for Utah.

Chloe Sims apparently plans to pursue coaching gymnastics instead of competing it for Utah.

Australian Gymnastics Blog reports why:

The Utes have just two freshmen coming in next season, Meg Whitney and Katelyn Mohr. The third member of their signing class, Australian Chloe Sims, passed the SAT and had solid grades but didn’t have all the necessary core classes to get through the NCAA Clearinghouse and won’t join the Utes.

In addition to learning that piece of news, I was contacted by a Queensland source yesterday who told me Chloe was spotted at a Level 1 coaching course in Brisbane over the weekend and is looking like taking up a coaching position in Toowoomba, where I’m told she has recently moved (from Brisbane). She was there representing a particular club and did some skills for demonstration. She remarked that she had been out of training for some time and ‘out of practise’ but still performed diligently for the gathered coaches-in-training.

AGB also reports that Aussie Melanie Jones has committed to Oregon State University. She’ll be the second member of the Australian team in Oregon, along with Olympian Olivia Vivian.

    That’s a shame for Chloe, I was looking forward to seeing her in NCAA

    It’s too bad she couldn’t have taken a semester off and gotten the classes (unless it was a ton)
