2016 Nastia Liukin Cup

4:52 PM

The seventh annual Nastia Liukin Cup begins a weekend full of Gymnastics at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. I am officially in love with this year's leotards! Seniors are wearing pink and black and Juniors are in pink and white. Good start from Brooklyn Bloxom on the Floor Exercise followed by a lovely routine from Makarri Doggette. Some massive tumbling from Gabryel Wilson! Lovely sportsmanship from all the gymnasts. A little short on a couple of handstands but a solid routine from Rachel Lukacs. Lovely vault from Abigail Brenner. Lovely vaults from Wynter Childers. Beautiful routine from Rachel Baumann. After the first rotation, Gabryel Wilson of Michigan Academy of Gymnastics leads the Junior division over Abbie Thompson of Orlando Metro and Andrea Li of Legacy Elite. After a gorgeous Floor routine, Natalie Wojcik of Berks Gymnastics sits behind Abigail Brenner of Twin City Twisters in the Senior division. WOGA's Rachel Baumann is in third. 

A couple of bobbles but a solid Beam routine from Rachael Flam. Awesome save from Kyla Bryant on the Beam. Beautiful Bars set from Abigail Brenner, Nice Beam set from Rachael Lukacs - step on the dismount. And of course my computer decided to have issues! With one rotation to go Melissa Reinstadtler of North Stars leads Doggette with Wojcik and Rachael Flam tied for third. For the Juniors, Amanda Cashman of Arena Gymnastics is tied with Legacy Elite's Andrea Li with Lali Dekanoidze of Southeastern Gymnastics in third. 

Great Bars set from Kimberly Tessen. Fantastic Balance Beam routine from Natalie Wojcik. Solid Vaults from Melissa Reinstadtler see her move to first over Wojcik in the Senior division. Powerful Vault from Flam - massive step forward. Massive step on the landing of her second Vault too. Moves into second place for the Seniors. Kyla Bryant is another powerful Vaulter. Phenomenal Vaulting from Rachael Lukacs!! Lukacs takes the Senior All Around over North Stars team mate Melissa Reinstadtler with Rachel Flam of Stars Gymnastics Training Center - Houston in third. Legacy Elite Gymnastics' Andrea Li took the Junior All Around honors over Lali Dekanoidze of Southeastern Gymnastics with Amanda Cashman of Arena Gymnastics in third.

For the Seniors - Lukacs finished first on the Vault and Floor Exercise. Brenner was the second highest scorer on the Vault with Flam and Kimberly Tessen (All American) tying for third. Kyla Bryant of Georgia Elite Gymnastics was the top scorer on the Uneven Bars with Reinstadtler and Olivia Raymond of North Stars Gymnastics Academy tying for second.
