USA Gymnastics Winter Cuprecurring event
Tickets are now on sale for USA Gymnastics’ annual Winter Cup and the accompanying Nastia Liukin Cup and Elite Team Cup, which will take place February 24-26 at Louisville's Freedom Hall within the Kentucky Exposition Center.
Traditionally a men’s event, past Winter Cup all-around champions include Olympians Jake Dalton, Sam Mikulak and Yul Moldauer (Wellington, Colo./5280 Gymnastics). In 2021, Olympic silver medalist Jordan Chiles (Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre) became the first women’s division champion. Last season, reigning U.S. champion Konnor McClain (Las Vegas, Nev./WOGA Gymnastics) captured the women’s title, while collegiate standout Vitaliy Guimaraes (Arvada, Colo./University of Oklahoma) topped the men’s podium.
Winter Cup is once again being held in conjunction with the annual Nastia Liukin Cup, which features many of the nation’s best women’s Level 10 athletes, and the Elite Team Cup, a regional team competition that showcases the top junior men’s gymnasts from around the country. Last year’s Nastia Liukin Cup senior division co-champion Jamison Sears (Yorktown, Va./World Class Gymnastics) will be back to defend her title, having secured her spot in the lineup during the first week of qualifying for the 2023 field. In the Elite Team Cup, Region 1 – which spans Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada – will look to keep the momentum going after snapping Region 3’s six-year unbeaten streak in 2022.
The tentative three-day competition schedule is below and is subject to change.
