I love this news about the American Cup being an FIG World Cup event now (via Gymnastics Coaching.  I love that it is going to be an AA World Cup event too- so that the US can still make sure their all-arounders are as competitive as possible.  But it will be so much more fun now that anyone can come to the party!  They can, right?
Besides, I think the American public will get just as big a kick out of seeing a high-quality international field attend as they would seeing the US girls dominate.
And for us, it means an actual exciting meet in March, that sad time when college gym is over, and the elite season isn't quite upon we have something FUN!


  1. Didn't they try this a few years ago and it was unsuccessful? Or was that when there was no AA and just apparatus finals? Anyway it sounds like a great idea, I look forward to it.

  2. College gym ends in May.
