“We are proud to partner with USA Gymnastics and support the incredible gymnasts who are pursuing their Olympic dreams,” said, Matt Lederer, VP, Branded Partnerships & Amplification at Comcast. “The Olympic Games Paris 2024 will be a truly unique celebration in one of the world’s most stunning cities and we look forward to once again bringing the thrill and excitement of the Games home. By highlighting these athletes’ remarkable stories of achievement, sportsmanship, and resilience, we hope to inspire the next generation.”
As part of the partnership, Comcast will support the growth of existing USAG programs serving disabled athletes, including HUGS, and will explore pilots for adaptive programs in the sport.
“We are so excited to welcome Comcast as a partner supporting the journeys of USA Gymnastics athletes,” USAG President and CEO Li Li Leung said. “The company’s commitment to innovation and to athletes in programs ranging from HUGS to the Olympic Team will serve the sport in a holistic way.”
The U.S. men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics national championships will be titled as the Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships through 2024, with the 2023 Xfinity U.S. Gymnastics Championships set for August 24-27 in San Jose, California.
