VAN ALSTYNE, Tex. - An Olympic gymnast tumbled into Texoma on Friday. Nastia Liukin made an appearance at Van Alstyne elementary's family fun night.
Liukin is a member of the USA gymnastics team and is headed to compete in the summer Olympics this year in Beijing.
She came to Van Alstyne, to help the PTA raise money for the school. Students were invited to have their picture taken with the future Olympian who said she was excited to be in town.
"First of all, I'm honored they asked me to do this and just to be here. It really is exciting. I love kids and I love being around and taking pictures with them so it is a lot of fun," says Liukin.
The PTA will use the money they raise to fund student activities like field trips and art projects.
