The thrill of the Olympic games  is not far from our minds. No one will forget anytime soon the incredible gymnastics performed by our Olympic All-Around Champion Simone Biles. Nor will anyone forget the race between  Kohei Uchimura who barely edged out Oleg Verniai of Ukraine to claim his gold all-around medal.

So…what’s next? We have another four years until we get to witness more unbelievable gymnastics from the many that train so tirelessly around the world. In the meantime, we have many exciting Invitationals and World meets to watch the up and coming get their feet wet, showing the world they will become the next Olympian.

The first major Elite meet for the new year will be the American Cup Invitational   to be held March 4th beginning at 11:30a.m. at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Fagan Smith & Sam Mikulak

Headlining for Team USA will be the two-time Olympian Sam Mikulak and Olympic alternate Ragan Smith. The other USA members (one female and one male) have not been named and will be named at a later date.

Other gymnasts that are scheduled to compete include:

American Cup 2017As many of the 2016 USA Olympic Team members may be taking some time off, many senior elite gymnasts are now in a position to step up and show what they have.

Smith will be a front runner for the 2020 Japan Olympics as she was one of the 2016 Rio alternate gymnasts as she finished fifth in the all-around and second on beam during the 2016 Olympic Trials. This will be Smith’s second year competing in the senior division.

Mikulak hopes to reclaim his 2014 American Cup title in his fourth showing at the American Cup Meet. Making a showing as the four-time defending US all-around champion, Mikulak was a member of both the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympic teams.

The Nastia Liukin Cup for all the qualifying Junior Olympic gymnasts will be held in conjunction with the American Cup. Tickets may be purchased through Prudential Center’s box office, ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, or at all Ticketmaster outlets.
