USA Gymnastics National History
one first got going all the way back in June of 1963, bringing together the country's best athletes for an unbelievable show
that instantly gained national recognition. Though there were no official winners in the early days, that finally changed
in 1971, when co-champions Joan Moore Gnat and Linda Metheny Mulvihill took it down for the women and Yoshi Takei did the
same for the men's side. From there, it was on to capture the crown, with iconic gymnasts like Kurt Thomas winning three straights
years and other legends like Tracee Talavera winning multiple titles in a row. Kim Zmeskal is the only woman to win this one
three straight years, which she was able to pull off three straight years in the early 1990s. With the all-stars of gymnastics
all descending on one place each year, this is an event that is absolutely guaranteed to be the perfect antidote for any gymnastics
fan looking to see a top-notch showcase of talent.
