LSU senior gymnast McKenna Kelley and her mother, Olympic legend Mary Lou Retton, are headed to New York to be on the Today show on NBC in the 8 a.m. hour Thursday, Kelley tweeted Tuesday night.

“Y’all stay tuned!” Kelley wrote. “It’s gonna be a BLAST!”

Kelley helped the Tigers to a runner-up finish Saturday in the NCAA Championships in Fort Worth, Texas.

After the meet, Kelley left open the possibility that she may return for a fifth year. She sat out the 2018 season with an Achilles’ tendon injury.

“There’s light peeking through the door,” Kelley said.

“I don’t know. I really don’t know.”
