The women were nominated based on their achievements between Aug. 1, 2009 and July 31, 2010. During that period, Bross finished second all-around and third on uneven bars at the 2009 World Championships in London, and first all-around at both the Tyson American Cup and the Pacific Rim Championships. She was the United States Olympic Committee's Female Athlete of the Month for both March and May.

Earlier this month, Bross won the all-around, uneven bars and balance beam titles at the U.S. national championships in Hartford.

Other athletes nominated include 2010 Olympic figure skating champion Yu-Na Kim (Korea), Olympic champion skiier Lindsey Vonn (U.S.) and tennis star Serena Williams (U.S.).

Coached by Valery Liukin and Dina Kamalova at World Olympic Gymnastics Academy, Bross is the frontrunner for the all-around title at the 2010 World Championships, to be held in Rotterdam in October.

The winner will be announced Oct. 12 in New York City.
