Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions San Antonio

Last weekend we had the chance to go see the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions.   It was awesome.   They had gymnastics from the both the Men’s and Women’s 2016 Olympic gymnastics team. As well has men and women from the 2016 Olympic Trampoline Team, two sisters from the 2016 Olympic rhythmic gymnastics team and men and women from acrobatic gymnastics.

Both of my daughters do gymnastics and were excited to see the gymnasts they watched on TV at the Olympics live.   We got a chance to see the following women's gymnasts at the show but due to commitments the lineup is constantly changing so each show has different athletes:

  • Simone Biles - 2016 Olympic team, all-around, vault and floor champion, and balance beam bronze medalist; three-time World all-around champion (2013-15); 14-time World medalist (10 gold, two silver, two bronze); four-time U.S. all-around champion (2013-2016).

  • Shawn Johnson –2008 Olympic balance beam champion, and team, all-around and floor silver medalist; 2007 World team, all-around and floor champion; 2007-08 U.S. all-around champion.
  • Nastia Liukin –2008 Olympic all-around champion; five-time Olympic (one gold, three silver and one bronze) and nine-time World medalist (four gold and five silver)

  • Ashton Locklear –2016 Olympic replacement athlete; 2016 and 2014 U.S. uneven bars champion; 2014 World Championships team champion

The show mixed today’s hits with dance routines and showcased the gymnasts.  We saw Simone Biles’s and MyKayla Skinner’s floor routine.  As well as many dancing and jumping and black light performances.   There were gymnasts dropping from the ceiling in Olympic rings truly a very entertaining show.  See a highlight video here from Flo Gymnastics

There were plenty of tables of merchandise to purchase at the show as well and I could not help but get this adorable leotard.
