2008 Olympic Gymnastics Champion Nastia Liukin, who is now also a NBC Commentator, NYU student, and a contestant on the 2015 season of “Dancing with the Stars”, was at IGI on April 10th for a two hour event titled “A Night to Shine”.
This night is not about gymnastics or even being an athlete – the goal of this event is to try to inspire young girls to SHINE in their own lives by sharing a message that speaks to the importance of goal setting, motivation, a good support system/strong friendships and self-confidence.
Nastia has done many “meet-and-greets” in her career, but this event is definitely not that – it’s meant to be more of a “hang out” session…a chance for Nastia to really interact with the girls and talk about the issues they are facing. Although the venue is at IGI Gymnastics, this event is meant for girls of all ages, athletes and non-athletes…anyone that is on their own journey to SHINE.
“I strongly encourage your entire team to attend. You’ll get behind the scenes info about the Olympic Trials and Olympics. You’ll learn fears she had, times she wanted to quit and reasons she didn’t, troubles with injuries, and more. Her message is inspirational – even to myself and my coaches – seriously! When the word gets out, she is going to be very busy doing these ‘Nights to Shine’ with Nastia. She was wonderful and we had 100% approval from the girls that attended.“ – Tom Forster – Colorado Aerials Gymnastics & USA National Staff Coach
