Who participates in the Nastia Liukin Cup?Thirty six of the top female Junior Olympians. They earned their way into this competition on the basis of points they earned in invitational meets. Nearly 20 events, which are part of the Nastia Liukin Cup Series, led up to this event. They are held throughout the country in January and February. The gymnasts compete in balance beam, floor exercise, vault, uneven bars and all-around. The combined scores in these events determine who wins the all-around title.
