Prev: 1x01 -- The Ranch: Home of an American Sports Dynasty (Jun/24/2016)

The Karolyi Ranch, located in the Sam Houston National Forest near Huntsville, Texas, has played a pivotal role in the record-breaking success of the U.S. women's gymnastics team. Built by legendary coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi, the training center hosts monthly national team camps for gymnasts like Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles and their personal coaches. It's where gymnasts come to improve their skills, form bonds with their fellow athletes, and try to impress Martha Karolyi—whose good opinion can earn a gymnast a spot on the Olympic team. NBC Sports Films, in association with USA Gymnastics and the USOC's "Team USA Hometown Stories" program, will premiere a one-hour documentary on the history and impact of the ranch on Friday, June 24 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. It will air immediately before the first night of the P&G Women's Championships, the last competition before the women's Olympic gymnastics team is chosen at the Olympic Trials on July 8 and 10.
