Today I headed over to the American Airlines Center for the Media Day at the Visa Championships – today was their final day of practice before the festivities start tomorrow. I got some great shots to use for backgrounds for our event with Universal Sports at the Visa Fan Fest on Saturday and had a blast doing it (took me back to my newspaper days :-). If you want to more photos go here.
2008 Beijing Olympic Gold medalist Nastia Liukin practices on the balance beam during practice for the 2009 Visa Gymnastic Championships at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Watching her is her proud father and coach, Valeri, a gold medalist himself for the Soviets.
Nastia Luikin is interviewed by the NBC Universal Sports Gymnastics commentators at the Universal Sports booth during the press evening and practice.
