The big story in the gymnastics world is that WOGA Gymnastics, with facilities in Plano and Frisco, Texas, will be the place where the U.S. women’s team trains with head coach Valeri Liukin.

The team had been training in Huntsville, Texas, and will be working at a WOGA’s  gym on a temporary basis.

Olympian Nastia Liukin said her dad, Valeri Liukin, is committed to providing a safe environment for “these young women working so hard at a sport we all love so much.”

The women’s team will be looking for a permanent training center.
