Italy’s Clara Colombo Signs with Nebraska (2019-20)

Name: Clara Colombo

Club: Juventus Nova Melzo

Best event(s): Uneven bars


Clara Colombo signed her National Letter of Intent with Nebraska this week and will become the first Italian gymnast to compete in the NCAA. Clara recently finished sixth in the Serie A Championships with her club and has some past international experience. Back in 2014 she competed at the Jesolo Trophy and in 2015 at International Gymnix.

In an interview with, Clara explained that she asked herself what she wanted to do with her future after graduating from high school. She knew that she wished to continue both to study and to do gymnastics and thanks to a friend she came to discover the world of the NCAA. She received offers from Iowa, Ohio State, Utah, Arkansas and Nebraska and eventually chose the latter.

Hopefully Clara’s experience in the NCAA will be a pathbreaker for future Italian gymnasts to follow in her footsteps!
