Trice left Tuesday for Abu Dhabi to represent the United States in the Special Olympics World Games in the sport of gymnastics. She will be competing for five medals at the world games, after receiving gold medals in floor, beam, uneven bars, vault and all-around at the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games held in Spokane, Washington.
