USA Gymnastics Brings 2014 AT&T American Cup to Greensboro
USA Gymnastics, the U.S. national governing body for gymnastics, has announced the 2014 AT&T American Cup has been awarded to Greensboro, N.C., the first time the event has been held in North Carolina.
Scheduled for Saturday, March 1, 2014, at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, the AT&T American Cup is the premier international event held in the United States and is part of the International Gymnastics Federation’s all-around World Cup series.
The competition features top male and female all-around gymnasts from around the world and is broadcast live on NBC Sports. Tickets are expected to go on sale this summer.
In conjunction with the AT&T American Cup, the Nastia Liukin Cup, which features many of the country’s top Junior Olympic female gymnasts, will be held on Feb. 28 at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, the night prior to the AT&T American Cup. The Nastia Liukin Cup, named after the 2008 Olympic gold medalist and one of the USA’s most popular gymnasts, showcases gymnasts who qualify through the Nastia Liukin Cup Series. The Cup series includes many of the top invitationals held in the USA from January through February.
Greensboro will be “gymnastics central” the last week of February because the 2014 Greater Greensboro Invitational is scheduled for Feb. 26-March 2, 2014, and will serve as the final qualifying event for the Nastia Liukin Cup. This is the first time the event has been part of the Nastia Liukin Cup Series.
The USA’s Katelyn Ohashi of Allen, Texas and Jake Dalton of Reno, Nev./University of Oklahoma, won the 2013 AT&T American Cup. They join an impressive list of former American Cup champions, including Bart Conner, Paul Hamm, Jonathan Horton, Shawn Johnson, Danell Leyva, Liukin, Shannon Miller, Carly Patterson, Mary Lou Retton, Peter Vidmar and Jordyn Wieber.
