2012 ATandT American Cup

10:02 PM

The 2012 edition of the AT&T American World Cup event, will take place at Madison Square Garden on the 3rd of March. Reigning World Champion Jordyn Wieber will be hoping to win her third American Cup title and Alexandra Raisman is back for another shot at the title. With the exception of the Romanians, Diana Maria Chelaru and Larisa Iordache, it is a chance for the up-and-comers to shine! Arguably two of the top Americans Danell Leyva and John Orozco will be representing the host nation, however there will be some fierce competition from the rest of the Men's field.... and four of the International male competitors who have been named have participated in this competition before (Philipp Boy, Mykola Kuksenkov, Cyril Tommasone and Mykola Kuksenkov and Daniel Purvis).
