"I'm so excited to go on a tour with Aly, Jordyn, Megan and Liz and bring our fans so many of our favorite things in one glam-filled event. I love the TEEN CHOICE awards and always get excited to see who gets the surfboard!" said Gabrielle Douglas, about appearing on the tour.
The three Olympic superstars all played a vital role in American women's dominance at the 2012 London Olympics and won hearts across America when they brought home the U.S. Gymnastics Gold for the first time in 16 years. Their triumphant return after wowing the world in London has meant a whirlwind of appearances celebrating America's newest teen celebrities.
"The support from our fans since we returned home has been incredible," said Aly Raisman. "This tour will be a fun 'thank you' to everyone that has shown that support and helped us accomplish our goals."
Jordyn Wieber added, "We know it's going to be an amazing show and hope the fans leave inspired to follow their dream, just like we followed ours."
Gabrielle Douglas is the first American to win the gold in both the individual all-around and team events at the same Olympics. Aly Raisman captained the women's team to the gold medal in the team event, and added a bronze on the balance beam before ending her Games with the United States' first-ever gold medal on the floor exercise. After entering the year as the defending U.S. and World All-Around Champion, Jordyn Wieber's strong performance in the Team Finals was crucial in bringing home U.S. Gymnastics Gold.
