The Nastia Liukin Cup, which will take place on 7 p.m. Friday, will showcase many of the country’s best Junior Olympic female gymnasts. Three dozen young competitors–18 junior and 18 senior Level 10 gymnasts–will compete in the event, including two from New Jersey: Rachael Lukacs of Hillsborough and Nikki St. Louis of Annandale.
The Elite Team Cup, which will be held the following day at 6 p.m., features top junior elite men from nine regions who are paired with a senior elite gymnast in a team competition. Each team includes six junior elite and one senior elite gymnast.
Both events are held in conjunction with the 2017 AT&T American Cup, a high-stakes, International Gymnastics Federation World Cup event that features some of the world’s biggest names in gymnastics. The 41-year-old competition, which returns to Newark for the second year in a row, is noted for highlighting some of the top rising stars in the sport. Last year, Olympic Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas was the women’s champion for the competition. The event will take place before the Elite Team Cup, at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 4th.
Individual tickets for the Nastia Liukin Cup and Elite Team Cup start at $30 for individuals and $15 apiece for groups of 10 or more people. AT&T American Cup tickets start at $39 per person. Visit prucenter.com for more information.
Correction: A previous version of this article misstated the name of a gymnast from Annandale. Her name is Nikki St. Louis, not Nikki St. Lukas.
