Student Gets Behind the Scenes at 2014 American Cup


HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 28, 2014 – High Point University junior Briayna Cuffie secured a coveted internship with USA Gymnastics to work as a media assistant at the 2014 AT&T American Cup and the Nastia Liukin Cup Feb. 28 – March 1 in Greensboro.

Cuffie is working with national news outlets including ESPN as they report on the international event, working on press releases and setting up media rooms.

“I know I want to do communications work in the future, so this is an amazing hands-on and once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Cuffie.

Cuffie was recommended for the internship through her current work with the Greensboro Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“Briayna’s strength is in communications and media relations,” says Amy Scott, director of marketing for the Greensboro Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. “I thought that she would be the ideal candidate for this amazing opportunity.”

The AT&T American Cup is the USA’s most prestigious international invitational and part of the International Gymnastics Federation’s all-around World Cup series. This year’s participants include 2012 Olympian Sam Mikulak, 2013 World parallel bars bronze-medalist John Orozco, U.S. National team member Brenna Dowell and 2012 Olympic alternate Elizabeth Price.
