34 gymnasts competed in the 2012 Nastia Luikin Cup at Madison Square Garden, New York, last Friday. All 34 had won a major competition in the Cup Series in order to qualify to be there. Nastia was there and so were the television cameras. And through it all Nia’s confidence increased and her performance improved and her scores went up with each event.

9.15 (br), 9.35 (bm), 9.50 (f), 9.55 (v).

5th place in the all around against 33 other champions.

Congratulations Nia!
