On Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014 Olympic Gold Medalist Carly Patterson will attend the event that includes private stadium tours, a gymnastics and football “fun-zone” on the field, and Patterson’s appearance.
ARLINGTON, Texas – ASI Gymnastics, a local youth fitness company that owns and operates 8 gymnastics facilities in Dallas and 2 in Houston, will host “ASI Gymnastics Presents an Evening at AT&T Stadium” on Tuesday, November 18, from 6-10 p.m. at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. 2004 Olympic all-around gold medalist Carly Patterson, who is also a two-time American Cup champion, will headline the event, which celebrates the 2015 AT&T American Cup’s returning to North Texas next March for the first time since 1998.
The AT&T American Cup is the most prestigious international gymnastics invitational held annually in the United States. Past champions have gone on to triumph at the Olympic Games, and the meet is known among fans of the sport as a predictor of Olympic success. This March, the AT&T American Cup will be held in a football stadium for the first time, and anticipation is building.
In addition to Patterson’s appearance, the ASI Gymnastics event on Nov. 18 will feature private tours of the stadium and locker rooms, and a gymnastics and football “fun-zone” on the field. Children of all ages can explore circuits with gymnastics equipment and compete in contests involving gymnastics skills, like handstands, and skill tests straight from the NFL combine, like a 40-yd. dash and field goal kicks.
