July 21, 2010 – Universal Sports presents exclusive live coverage of the 2010 CoverGirl Classic
on Saturday, July 24 at 8 p.m. ET at the UIC Pavilion on the University of Illinois-Chicago’s

Highlighting this year’s CoverGirl Classic is the return of 2008 Olympic silver-medalist Alicia
Sacramone. In her first competitive appearance since announcing a year ago that she was coming
out of retirement, Sacramone will look to perform well, just three week away from the 2010 Visa
Championships. The competition will be fierce as the reigning world champion, Bridget Sloan,
and world silver-medalist, Rebecca Bross, both of whom have already qualified for nationals, will
be sure to bring their best in hopes of perfecting their routines for nationals.

2010 Visa Championships, the U.S. National Championships for men’s and women’s artistic
gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline and tumbling. Universal Sports will broadcast
