Jessica Lopez (Venezuela)

Venezuela’s Jessica Lopez, a competitor at the 2008 Olympics and 2009 World Championships and former team member of the University of Denver Women’s Gymnastics team has signed on to compete in her third American Cup.

In 2008, Lopez finished 6th at the competition, recording a 57.400 and, in the words of my father, “put on a clinic on that floor exercise.” In 2009, Lopez encountered problems on three of the four apparatus, finishing 10th of ten gymnasts.

At the 2008 Olympic Games, Lopez finished 43rd in the All-Around. In 2009 at the World Championships, Lopez was 37th in the All-Around.
