From London 2012 to The Arena at Gwinnett Center
Published: August 13, 2012
Is there anyone else out there totally obsessed with the Olympics? I am definitely one of those people. I love the fact that every four years the whole world can become united for one event, and the talent of the athletes is truly amazing.
The Olympics this year were especially exciting for me for two reasons: 1) I actually had the opportunity to spend some time in London during the games and 2) many of the faces of the Olympics will be here at Gwinnett Center during the coming months.
Wait...what did I just say?? You heard me right. Many of the faces of the 2012 Olympic games will be RIGHT HERE at Gwinnett Center. How cool is that? The games are not over just yet!
The U.S. Olympic gymnasts, including the GOLD medal winning women's team, will be here OCT. 27 for theKellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions. All of your favorites such as Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, John Orozco, Jonathan Horton and more will be putting on a star-studded exhibition sure to dazzle you with their medal winning flips and tricks.
At last night's Closing Ceremonies, The Who rocked the crowd and the world with their performance. They will be bringing their Quadrophenia tour right here to Gwinnett on NOV. 5.
The fun continues with legendary tennis player John McEnroe, who you might have seen on TV throughout the Olympic games providing commentary on the tennis events. John will be joining fellow tennis legends Jim Courier, Mats Wilander and Jimmy Connors for the PowerShares Series Champions Shootout on NOV. 10! Jim Courier is actually a former Olympian himself, competing in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
As you can see, we are continuing the excitement of the London 2012 Olympics well into the fall, and I hope you will be out to join us for some of these exciting events!
