The Laurie Hernandez Champions Challenge

December 17-19, 2021

Knoxville, Tennessee

Welcome to the 2021 Laurie Hernandez Champions Challenge, a women's artistic gymnastics championship hosted by LR Productions. Finalists for the Laurie Hernandez Champions Challenge will be selected from a series of qualifiers across the United States & Puerto Rico. Levels 1-10 & all Xcel divisions are eligible to qualify. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Puerto Rico & Puerto Rico Gymnastics. YOU GOT THIS! 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and Administrative orders in Puerto Rico we are forced to relocate the 2021 Puerto Rico Classic and the Laurie Hernandez Champions Challenge. Our new location will be the Knoxville, TN Convention Center in Knoxville, TN, the dates remain December 16-19, 2021.
Given the latest Administrative Order from Puerto Rico we were advised to make this venue change for 2021. The latest Administrative Order makes it impossible for any gymnast under 12 years old to attend. 
"Administrative Order 2021-518, discloses: The administrative order establishes, that given there is no authorized vaccine for children under 12 years of age, they will not be able to attend mass events that promote the mass gathering of people, even if they have a negative qualified test." We attempted to get a waiver from the government but was unsuccessful.

Are you ready for The Challenge?


At each qualifier, the Top 2 ALL- AROUND winners of each level plus a "Judge's Choice" will qualify to The Laurie Hernandez Champions Challenge in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Open to levels 1-10 & all Xcel gymnasts. We are excited to offer ALL gymnasts the chance to take center stage at an international competition.


See you in Puerto Rico!!!
