Fort Wayne, Ind. (WANE) — USA Gymnastics Olympic Silver medalist MyKayla Skinner will be making an appearance at the Grand Wayne Convention Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
She will be in Fort Wayne for her Never Give Up Invitational tour from Friday, Jan. 27 to Sunday, Jan. 29. The invitational is a women’s gymnastics competition tour open to USA Gymnastics and the National Gym Association (NGA).
LR Productions, the host of the tour, connected with Visit Fort Wayne last year as they were looking to bring one of their invitationals to Fort Wayne. The Grand Wayne Convention Center partnered with Visit Fort Wayne to put on this event.
The 2023 Invitational is expecting to see 2,500 attendees over the 3-day period.
There will be no filming or photographing inside the competition area, but Skinner will be available to media for comment, and gymnasts may be available as long as on-site parent permission is obtained.
