‘Fab Five’ U.S. gymnastics team coming to Barclays Center
U.S. gymnasts and America’s sweethearts Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney, will be taking the mat together in New York City this fall.
The gold medal-winning team is scheduled to appear at the Barclays Center on November 18 as part of the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions.
Douglas and Raisman each won two gold medals in London. Douglas made history as the first African-American woman to take home the all-around individual gold title and Raisman is the first U.S. woman to win individual Olympic gold on the floor exercise.
They’ll be joined by Nastia Liukin, the 2008 Olympic All-Around Gold medalist.
Three gymnasts from the U.S. men’s team will also perform at the event as part of the tour: John Orozco, Jonathan Horton and Jake Dalton.
Tickets for the 3 pm show are available on the Barclays Center website.
