USA Sweeps 2016 City of Jesolo Trophy Podium
It was an incredible weekend in Italy as the USA women continued to climb to the top of the podium during each event at the 2016 City of Jesolo Trophy. Combined between the senior and junior women competitors, USA claimed a total of 18 medals over the weekend. Just like last year, GK Champions Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas made their mark and took home quite a bit of hardware themselves. Congratulations, ladies. We are so proud of you!
Gabby Douglas of Buckeye Gymnastics in OH was the All-Around champion with a total score of 59,650. Her consistency and strength across each event gave viewers flash backs to four years ago when she was on a much larger world stage. Other medals she won this weekend were the Sr. Team gold medal, silver medal on bars, and bronze medal on floor.
2016 City of Jesolo Trophy: Aly Raisman
Aly Raisman of Brestyan’s American Gymnastics in MA gave a gorgeous performance that won her the event champion title on floor and a bronze medal on the beam. Her grace and poise was undeniable and helped her team take home the Sr. Team gold medal.
On day one of the competition, USA wore this custom v-neck gymnastics leotard. The shimmering magenta opalescence hologram bodice radiated under the spotlights and was complemented by an elegant magenta mesh top and sleeves. Our new peacock brilliance Swarovski crystals cascade down the center and create symmetrical ribbons that dance along the sleeves. Eyes from all over the arena were captivated by the endless sea of sparkle at every turn.
For day two, the women wore this custom v-neck leotard that features a red mystique bodice and red hot mesh sleeves. Striking red mystique style lines highlight the contemporary faux sweetheart styling. Spectators couldn’t help but notice the thousands of brilliance Swarovski crystals that lit up under the spotlights and radiated a sparkle that was second to none.
