USA Gymnastics and Indiana Sports Corp announced Friday that the 2015 U.S. Gymnastics Championships will return to Indianapolis.
“Bringing the Super Bowl of gymnastics to Indianapolis was an easy decision for us,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. “Indianapolis and Indiana Sports Corp are known for staging quality and successful events, Pacers Sports & Entertainment also has a reputation of success and cooperation, and we want to showcase our sport in our hometown. The 2005 nationals were a big success, and we have every expectation that 2015 will also be a home run.”
The four-day competition will take place at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse from Aug. 13-16. This is the fourth time the competition will be held in the Circle City. The event was held in Indianapolis in 1986, 1998 and 2005.
"Our community has enjoyed a long-standing partnership with USA Gymnastics," said Allison Melangton, Indiana Sports Corp president. "Coming off an Olympic performance that captivated our country, we are thrilled that USA Gymnastics has chosen Indianapolis to host their national championships for the fourth time. It will be a tremendous event for our local community, as well as fans from across the country who will converge on Indianapolis."
The completion will begin with women’s gymnastics, juniors and seniors on Thursday, Aug. 13, and Saturday, Aug. 15. Men’s gymnastics, juniors and seniors, will be held on Friday, Aug. 14, and Sunday, Aug. 16.
The USA Gymnastics National Congress and Trade Show, which is open to the community, will be held at the Indiana Convention Center.
