Nastia Liukin gets some pointers from Alexis Jones as she stops by the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort on Friday afternoon (June 3) in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The 21-year-old Olympian took a break from teaching and giving gymnastic to young girls at the 2011 ESPN RISE Girls Showcase at Disney to shoot some hoops with the USA Basketball Women’s under-19 team.
The ESPN RISE Girls Showcase brings together one of the biggest collections of elite female youth athletes in the country. The three-week sports festival involves nearly 15,000 elite and recreational female athletes competing in basketball, gymnastics (artistic and rhythmic), softball, taekwondo and volleyball.
Nastia is currently training for the 2012 Olympics.
