The Gilbert native landed in Arizona around 5 p.m. and her family and friends were there to greet her. Skinner posted on Instagram a farewell to Japan, saying "See ya soon AZ," in a much different tone than her first farewell to the Tokyo Olympics.
Last week, Skinner was prepared to go home and posted a heartbreaking goodbye to the Games after an Olympic rule only allowed two gymnasts per country to advance to event finals. In the vaults competition, those two gymnasts were Simone Biles and Phoenix native Jade Carey.
