"It is a privilege to host an event of this magnitude and we are thrilled to have helped bring another world-class event to the city," said Tim Ryan, President/CEO of Anaheim Arena Management. “Anaheim has continued to grow as a premier entertainment and sports destination, and we believe the 2017 P&G Gymnastics Championships will add significantly to that legacy.”
In addition to several post-Olympic gymnastics tour events, Honda Center also played host to the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships and the 2004 U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Team Trials.
"Anaheim has a storied history with gymnastics at the highest level," said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics, “and bringing the P&G Gymnastics Championships is the next chapter. The U.S. women won the USA’s first women’s World team title at the 2003 World Championships, where Paul Hamm also made U.S. gymnastics history by winning the World all-around crown. The 2004 Olympic Trials was an incredible success, and we expect the 2017 P&G Championships to be one of our best.”
"Anaheim and the greater hospitality industry is ready to roll out the mats to welcome the 2017 P&G Gymnastics Championships” said Jay Burress, president of Visit Anaheim. “Visit Anaheim recently established Sports Anaheim, a newly formed group with the primary purpose of attracting world-class sporting events to our destination. P&G’s Gymnastics Championships is our first announcement of what we know to be many, in attracting and hosting events that will fulfill this group’s mission of developing, marketing and selling the destination and positively impacting the greater community.”

The P&G Championships determines the men’s and women’s U.S. champions and the U.S. National Team for the junior and senior elite levels. The field will feature the country’s top gymnasts, and the championships also traditionally serves as part of the selection process for the U.S. Team for the World Championships.
Simone Biles of Houston, Texas/World Champions Centre, and Sam Mikulak of Newport Beach, Calif./Team Hilton (U.S. Olympic Training Center), won their fourth consecutive women's and men's U.S. all-around titles, respectively, at the 2016 P&G Championships. The roster of former U.S. all-around champions is a veritable who's who of gymnastics, including: women – Jordyn Wieber, Nastia Liukin, Shawn Johnson, Carly Patterson, Courtney Kupets, Shannon Miller, Dominique Dawes, Kim Zmeskal and Mary Lou Retton; and men – Paul Hamm, Blaine Wilson, John Roethlisberger, Mitch Gaylord, Peter Vidmar and Bart Conner. The U.S. Gymnastics Championships traces its history back to 1897 for the men and 1931 for the women.
