The Grand Wayne Convention Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana is honored to welcome Gymnastics World Champion and 8-time NCAA National Gymnastics Champion Maggie Nichols for her We Are Strong Invitational Thursday, January 25 - Sunday, January 28, 2024. The Invitational is a women's gymnastics competition tour open to USA Gymnastics and NGA levels 1-10, and Xcel divisions.

Maggie will be available to media for comment and gymnasts may be available as well as long as permission is obtained by their parent on-site. There is no filming or photographing gymnasts inside the competition area. If you’d like to cover this event please contact Jim Lucas at (843) 475-1991 to schedule.

The event is timely with Maggie's book release last week, Unstoppable! My Journey from World Champion to Athlete A to 8-Time NCAA National Gymnastics Champion and Beyond. Take a look at her interview with CBS News covering the book release here.

LR Productions connected with Visit Fort Wayne in 2022 to bring Olympic Silver Medalist MyKayla Skinner to the Grand Wayne Convention Center for her Never Give Up invitational last year, and LR Productions has worked in partnership with the Grand Wayne Convention Center to bring this prestigious event back to our city with Maggie Nichols.

LR Productions is also committed to bringing more events to Fort Wayne in future years.
