Field for 2013 American Cup Announced

8:08 PM

The 2013 American Cup will take place on the 2nd of March at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. The first All Around World Cup event for 2013 boasts an exciting line up even though one Female gymnast is yet to be added to the draw. Also the Women's Artistic representative from Canada and Men's representative from Japan are yet to be announced. Elizabeth Price and Kyla Ross will be the home country favorites however definitely do not count out any of the other Women who have been named to the field! The Men's field is very strong but I think Marcel Nguyen of Germany and Americans Jacob Dalton and Danell Leyva are standouts. Personally, I am looking forward to seeing Colombian stalwart Jorge Hugo Giraldo Lopez competing!

UPDATED 24/1: Elizabeth Price is out due to a strained hip muscle and as such a second female Anerican WAG Gymnast will be named after the February National Training Camp. Romanian Larisa Iordache has also withdrawn with her replacement still to be named. Japan's Koko Tsurumi has been added to the field. Whilst the unknown gymnasts from Japan (MAG) and Canada (WAG) have been announced as being Hiroki Ishikawa and Victoria Moors.
