INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 4, 2018 – USA Gymnastics women’s program is holding a one-day verification event, similar to the American Classic, to select the athletes to compete at three upcoming international events. Scheduled for Feb. 25, the one-day event will be held at Louisiana State University’s training facility.
“We want to thank LSU's women’s gymnastics program for the opportunity to use their facility,” said Rhonda Faehn, senior vice president for women’s gymnastics. “Their incredible facility allows us to hold an alternative for team verification that uses a format that is familiar to the athletes and coaches. We will provide more information in the near future.”
Athletes will be named for the all-around World Cup competitions in Stuttgart, Germany, Birmingham, Great Britain, and Tokyo, Japan, as well as the alternate for the 2018 American Cup. The opportunity is open to members of the women’s national team and other rising gymnasts who were invited to participate in the original February verification camp.
