The 2000 Olympic Trials were held on August 17-20 at the Fleet Center in Boston, Massachusetts. This competition determined who would represent the United States at the Olympics in Sydney.

Format of Competition

The competition was the same as the National Championships. There were two days of competition, where the all-around was contested on both days.

At the end of the second day of competition, the six spots would be decided by USA Gymnastics and the Olympic selection committee. The team would be announced after the competition finished, a method later used at the 2012 Olympic Trials.
