The world’s best gymnasts will all be under one roof this week for the 2023 World Gymnastics Championships. Taking place September 30 to October 8 at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium, the annual event sees athletes competing in both team and individual apparatus and all-around competitions.
Watch the World Gymnastics Championships live in the U.S. on Peacock, the official NBCUniversal streaming partner. Peacock will have a live feed of the event available to stream live or watch on-demand through their Peacock Premium tier.
Fresh off her record-breaking eighth U.S. Gymnastics Championships title, Simone Biles returns to the Worlds for the sixth time. The Olympic champ is a 25-time medalist at this event, and will be looking to add to her already-impressive list of accolades. This also marks Biles first appearance at the World Championship since 2019.
This year’s competition also takes on heightened significance as Olympic qualifying spots will be up for grabs. The U.S. women’s gymnastics team has already qualified for next year’s Paris Olympics, but the men’s team still needs to book their ticket.
