American Cup Competitors Announced

By January 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Danell Leyva, Jake Dalton, Kyla Ross, and Elizabeth Price will be the athletes representing team USA at the 2013 American Cup, held March 2 in Worcester, Mass.

This is a great line-up -- I'm excited to see all four of these gymnasts compete, and am especially impressed that 2012 Olympians Dalton, Leyva, and Ross are ready to compete again after London. Price has been competing very well all season, and should be fun to watch as well.

The international roster is also looking pretty strong. On the women's side, Vanessa Ferrari (Italy), Asuka Teramoto (Japan), Larissa Iordache (Romania), and Elisabeth Seitz (Germany) have been announced, with two more gymnasts to be added.

The men's line-up includes Marcel Nguyen (Germany), Kristian Thomas (Great Britain), Sergio Sasaki (Brazil),  Oleg Verniaiev (Ukraine), and Jorge Hugo Giraldo Lopez (Colombia). One more male gymnast will be added as well.
