As reported on PR Newswire and USA Gymnastics

WORCESTER, MA, March 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — The Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup was held at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass. Competing were 36 gymnasts who traveled from 17 states across the country to participate. Proceeds from the event benefit the Nastia Liukin Fund, a charitable fund within the National Gymnastics Foundation.Nastia Liukin Cup Winners

The 36 young women were chosen to compete in the Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup based on performances at the 15 invitationals that comprised the Nastia Liukin Cup Series. Each invitational selected a minimum of two athletes from the respective Level 10/open fields. The Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup is a partnership between Warner Bros. Consumer Products, USA Gymnastics and Liukin. Always aware of how much life has given her and determined to give back, Liukin is proud to host an event that helps fund the Nastia Liukin Fund. The Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup and the accompanying Nastia Liukin Cup Series provide a unique competitive opportunity for the country's rising female gymnasts.

"We had an amazing group of talented gymnasts participate in my first ever Supergirl Cup," said Nastia Liukin, 2008 Olympic all-around champion. "I congratulate Lexie, Kassandra, and Diandra for their incredible performances today. They serve as an inspiration to the Supergirl in all of us."

With her desire to be a positive role model for young girls, Liukin enjoyed meeting the young gymnasts to share the Supergirl vision— with hard work, belief in yourself, and commitment to a dream—anything is possible. The Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup participants received a Nastia Liukin-designed gymnastics leotard and matching gymnastics warm-up from GK Elite; two tickets to the Tyson American Cup and recognition during that event for the Cup's medalists.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., March 2, 2010 – The 36 gymnast field is now set for the 2010 Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup on March 5, 2010, at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass. The final two competitors – Madison Krentz of Cave Creek, Ariz./Arizona Sunrays and Jaclyn McCartin of West Covina, Calif./Charter Oak Gliders – were selected this past weekend at the Long Beach (Calif.) Open. During seven weeks of competition, 36 gymnasts from 17 states were selected from the 15 invitationals in the Nastia Liukin Cup Series to compete in the inaugural Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup.

“It’s important for me to be able to give back to the gymnastics community that has supported me so much,” said 2008 Olympic all-around champion Nastia Liukin of Parker, Texas. “The Supergirl Cup is a great way to give girls the chance to compete, shoot for their dreams, and let their inner Supergirl take flight.”

“We are so excited to be hosting the Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup for these athletes,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. “This event will allow some of our top Junior Olympic gymnasts to experience gymnastics like an elite athlete and provide a chance for them to mingle with some of the best in the sport. It is going to be a fun weekend in Worcester.”

Each of the 15 invitationals that comprised the Nastia Liukin Cup Series selected a minimum of two athletes from the respective Level 10/open fields to compete in the Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup, a joint venture between Warner Bros. Consumer Products, USA Gymnastics and Liukin. The Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup and the accompanying Nastia Liukin Cup Series provide a unique competitive opportunity for the country’s rising female gymnasts. The complete list of participants is included below.

“Nastia Liukin is the perfect brand ambassador for this initiative and a person who embodies the attributes of Supergirl in her own right,” said Karen McTier, executive vice president, domestic licensing and worldwide marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “We are proud to be able to align with Nastia and give this talented group of gymnasts the opportunity to strive for excellence and find their own inner Supergirl.”

Fans around the country can watch the inaugural Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup live on television or the web via Universal Sports and www.universalsports.com from 7-9 p.m. ET.

To catch all the action in person, Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup tickets can be purchased for $25 general admission, through Ticketmaster by phone at 800-745-3000; online at www.ticketmaster.com; at all Ticketmaster outlets; or at the DCU Center Ticket Office.
