Can’t get enough of the “Fab Five”? Find yourself using the side of your sofa as a vault? Have we got a show for you! The Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions will be springing into the Barclays Center on November 18 and USA Gymnastics reports that tickets are now on sale. Olympic all-stars such as Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney (though I doubt she’s impressed) will join past Olympians such as Nastia Liukin and Alicia Sacramone for an afternoon of dazzling handsprings, saltos, and scissors.
Of course, exhibition performances are no Olympics — Atlantic Wire’s Elspeth Reeve told the Brooklyn Paper that “the performances usually feature a lot of wallowing around in bad chiffon, and not a lot of flipping.” (“The tweens will come out,” she adds). That said, it’s still the closest to the games most of us will ever get.
