PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – USA Gymnastics will hold its 2014 national championships in Pittsburgh. It’s the first major gymnastics competition to be held in the city.
The championships will run from Aug. 21-24, 2014 at CONSOL Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The meet comes ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Pittsburgh hosted a gymnastics exhibition last fall as part of the post-Olympic tour headlined by members of the gold-medal winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team.
