It's one of the first bid events of the season and the atmosphere is electric with anticipation. Athletes from across the nation made their way to Kansas City, MO full of anticipation, quiet determination and confidence.
After training all summer long and spending the past several weeks perfecting their performance, it was finally time to take the mat.
Everyone had one goal in mind, hit a solid routine they could be proud of and impress the judges.
Athletes smiled ear to ear as the crowd took the #BeAFan pledge and supported the athletes with a roar of cheers, applause and "5-6-7-8s."
The level of athleticism, over the top talent and skill on display was a reflection of the preparation and passion athletes have in their hearts.
Day 2 is still ahead and it represents a chance to build on the first performances, earn bids, and of course, make irreplaceable memories with your team.
