Massilia Cup

Our High Performance Junior girls Marisa Dick (14) and Brielle Wilchuck (15) competed at the prestigious Massilia Cup in Marseille, France from November 18-20th.  For their first international competition the girls remained composed and had great results.  Marisa finished 3rd on vault in finals competing against Russian world champion members!  Her hard work paid off with a consistent all around finish of 14th and no falls!  Brielle managed to work through a painful foot injury and stuck her beam routine and vault for an all around finish of 37th.  Congrats girls!

Shannon Miller is Coming to Pink!
Shannon Miller remains the most decorated American gymnast, male or female, in history. She is the only American to rank among the Top 10 all-time gymnasts and is the only female athlete to be inducted into the US Olympics Hall of Fame - twice! We are thrilled to have Shannon joining us for our Sunday sessions and know she will inspire all those in attendance. 

 National Anthem Singers Needed 
Think you've got the pipes? We love to feature the vocal talent in the gymnastics community and need singers to perform the National Anthem at the Pink Invitational sessions. If you are a coach, judge, parent, gym owner, or gymnast and would like to be considered, please contact us at pinkinvitational@yahoo.com. We would love to hear a demo, too. So if you have a video on YouTube or Facebook, just let us know. 

Philly Food
The Pink Invitational is just over a month away! Whether you are visiting the city for the first time, or you go there all the time...you won't want to miss the Reading Terminal Market. The indoor farmers market covers one city block and features baked goods, sandwiches, fish, poultry, flowers and so much more! Located right next to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, this incredible experience is only a short walk away. For more information, you can visit their website by clicking on the link below.
