In less than a week, the 2010 edition of the CoverGirl Classic, the last chance to qualify to the 2010 Visa Championships, will be underway at the UIC Pavillion on the campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Quite a few big names will be in attendance as competitors, including 2008 Olympian and 2009 World All-Around Champion Bridget Sloan (Pittsboro, IN / Sharp’s) and her 2008 Olympic teammate Alicia Sacramone (Winchester, MA / Brestyan’s). Sloan’s training partner and 2008 Olympic teammate Samantha Peszek (McCordsville, IN / Sharp’s) is still undecided on competing at the 2010 Visa Championships in Hartford, Connecticut. Peszek is still recovering from a shoulder surgery last fall and is preparing to attend and compete for UCLA in September. According to her coach Marvin Sharp, Peszek is waiting until the last minute to decide whether she will compete in Hartford.

In addition to Sloan and Sacramone, fan-favorites Samantha Shapiro and Mattie Larson (both of Los Angeles, CA / All-Olympians) will be on hand to compete in Chicago after long absences due to injury.

It will certainly be an exciting weekend in Chicago.
