All invitees will be gifted a ticket to both nights of competition of the Women’s Olympic Trials, invitations to the 2016 USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame luncheon, an unannounced event on Saturday night, and travel costs.

Wendy Bruce Martin, 1992 Women’s Olympic Team member, says, “It is beyond amazing the opportunity and experience USA Gymnastics just gave to us.”

This first time ever event held by USA Gymnastics will be a great opportunity for all participants to reminisce with former teammates and to share experiences with members of other teams.  In addition, gymnastics fans will get to see the all time greats of our sport celebrating the successes of USA Gymnastics!
