Kayla DiCello (/diˈsɛl/ or /diˈɛl/ di-SELL-o or di-CHELL-o)[2] (born January 25, 2004)[3] is an American artistic gymnast and part of the United States women's national gymnastics team. She is the 2019 Junior World Champion on vault and the 2019 U.S. Junior National Champion.

Personal life

DiCello was born to Matt and Kecia DiCello in 2004, and has three siblings, two sisters named Karleigh and Kyra and a brother named Hunter. She began gymnastics when she was two.[3]

Gymnastics career


2016 - 2017

DiCello was a HOPES gymnast in 2016 and became junior elite in 2017 after qualifying at the Brestyan’s National Qualifier.[4]


DiCello was officially added to the junior national team after she was named to the team to compete at the 2018 Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships.[5] There she won gold in the team, vault, and uneven bars and silver in the all-around behind Jordan Bowers. She finished 4th on balance beam.[6] In early July, DiCello competed at the American Classic where she finished first in the all-around with a score of 55.400, posting the highest score of the competition amongst both juniors and seniors. She also finished first on vault and balance beam, second on floor, and third on uneven bars.[7] On July 28, DiCello competed at the 2018 U.S. Classic where she finished second behind Leanne Wong after falling off the balance beam.[8]

With her placements at these three competitions, DiCello entered the August 2018 U.S. National Championships in Boston as one of the favorites for the Junior national title along with Wong, Bowers, and Sunisa Lee. After two days of competition in which she tallied an impressive score of 111.200, DiCello won the silver medal in the all-around competition, once again behind Wong.[9] She performed well on both days of the competition and was the only junior gymnast to score in the top four on all four individual events: fourth on balance beam, third on uneven bars and floor exercise, and first on vault, where she stuck her double-twisting Yurchenko vault on the second day of competition to edge out Wong, the defending champion on the event.[10] After her performance, she was once again named to the national team.[11]

In November, DiCello announced that she had verbally committed to attend the University of Florida on a gymnastics scholarship.[12]


DiCello competed at the WOGA Classic in early February. She won the Junior All-Around title with a score of 55.700, outscoring the senior field as well.[13] Later that month DiCello was named to the team to compete at the 2019 City of Jesolo Trophy.[14] While there she sustained a calf injury and was only able to compete on uneven bars.[15] During team finals, she helped the USA win silver behind Russia.[16]

In June DiCello competed at the Junior World Championship Trials. She placed second behind Skye Blakely and was named to the team to compete at the 2019 Junior World Championships alongside Blakely and Sydney Barros.[17] Together the team won bronze, finishing behind Russia and China. Individually she finished fourth in the all-around behind Russians Viktoria Listunova and Vladislava Urazova and Ou Yushan of China. She was the only competitor that qualified to all four event finals.[18] On the first day of event finals DiCello won gold on vault, finishing ahead of competitors Jennifer Gadirova of Great Britain and Urazova[19] and finished sixth on uneven bars.[20] On the second day of event finals she won bronze on balance beam behind Elena Gerasimova of Russia and Wei Xiaoyuan of China and placed seventh on floor exercise.[21]

In July DiCello competed at the U.S. Classic where uncharacteristic falls on the balance beam and floor exercise resulted in an eleventh place finish in the all-around. She won bronze on uneven bars behind Olivia Greaves and Sydney Morris and placed seventh on vault.[22]

In August DiCello competed at the U.S. National Championships. After the first day of competition she recorded a score of 56.000 and was in second behind Konnor McClain.[23] During the second day of competition scored a 56.700, giving her a total combined score of 112.700 which was enough to win the gold in the all-around by one tenth over silver medalist McClain. This score would have placed her third all-around in the senior competition. Additionally DiCello won gold on vault and floor exercise, bronze on uneven bars behind Olivia Greaves and McClain, and placed fourth on balance beam behind McClain, Ciena Alipio, and Skye Blakely. At this competition, DiCello increased her floor difficulty by debuting a full-twisting double layout, or Chusovitina as her first tumbling pass.



In January it was announced that DiCello would make her senior debut at the American Cup, taking place on March 7.[24] She finished in second place behind compatriot Morgan Hurd, with a score of 55.132 in the all-around.[25] She posted the second highest score on vault behind Great Britain’s Jennifer Gadirova and the third highest on floor behind Gadirova and Hurd.


DiCello competed at the American Classic in April. She only competed on the uneven bars and on balance beam where she placed second behind Sunisa Lee and fifth respectively.[26]

In May, DiCello competed at the GK US Classic, finishing third in the all-around behind Simone Biles and Jordan Chiles. She also placed first on the uneven bars, tied for ninth on balance beam with Emma Malabuyo, and placed third on floor exercise behind Biles and Chiles.[27] At the National Championships DiCello finished 11th in the all-around. She won silver on floor exercise behind Simone Biles. As a result she was named to the national team and selected to compete at the upcoming Olympic Trials.[28]
