The US gymnastics team won gold at the Beijing Olympics in the women’s event, but it is a short step to the next big event.
Barbie Gymnastic has already confirmed that it will start back up again, but only in April at the new Olympic Park.
“Barbie gymnasts are back on the schedule after a short break,” a statement on the team’s official website said.
“Our goal is to bring gymnastics back to its former glory, but we know that there is still work to be done to make it the best sport it can be.”
We will be back to work, and we hope to bring the gymnastics community together again soon.
“And, if you are interested in our team, you can get a preview of our new schedule here.”
Barbie’s new home is the newly renovated Olympic Park, which opened in March 2016.
The world’s first barbell vault at the Olympic Park in Beijing, with gymnast Gabriella Dazzi, was completed by Dazzis mother on the opening day of the Games.
The new venue is just six kilometres away from the Olympic Centre, and is designed to be the home of gymnastics for the next 10 years.
“The building is very modern, it is very clean, and it is also in a beautiful area of the Olympic National Park,” Barbie head of development and operations, Lili Kishore, told the ABC.
“It is very welcoming for the gymnasts and the other athletes that are working there.”
You see so many athletes here.
You see all the families coming together.
“Barbins first Olympic Games competition was in 2008 when it competed in the men’s vault, which featured six competitors.
The last gymnastics event in the Games, in 2012, saw the first American gymnasts compete in the vault.
The US team is set to compete at the Rio Olympics, with a date yet to be announced.
