(Tulsa-AP) -- America's top female gymnasts will compete at the U-S Classic next month in Tulsa.

The meet is slated for July 6 - 8 at Oral Roberts' Mabee Center.

The event is the second time an international gymnastics meet will be held in Tulsa in an Olympic year.

Olympic gold medalists Amy Chow and Dominique Dawes are among the entrants for the event.

The U-S Classic will serve as a qualifying event and preview for the John Hancock U-S Gymnastics Championships scheduled for July 26-29 in Saint Louis.

Tulsa World of Gymnastics is sponsoring the U-S Classic.

Linda Bradshaw owns Tulsa World of Gymnastics with her husband Wayne. Bradshaw says eleven of the nation's top 20 gymnasts are already registered for the event.
