(Tulsa-AP) -- Gymnast Shannon Miller will continue her comeback try next month when she competes at the U-S Classic gymnastics meet at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa.

Miller is America's most decorated female gymnast. She will be joined by 1996 Olympic gold medal teammates Dominique Dawes, Dominique Moceanu and Amy Chow.

Chow is the only present member of the U-S Women's Senior National Team. The other three will use the meet as a tune up for the Olympic trials scheduled for August 17th through the 20th in Boston.

Miller's coach, Steve Nunno, admits that it will be difficult for Miller to qualify this time around because she's almost starting from a clean slate.

The top 12 from the U-S Classic will compete in the John Hancock U-S Championships July 26th through the 29th in Saint Louis.
