A-1 Awards and Shannon Miller Reveal “Dare to Dream” Collection

America’s Most Decorated Gymnast announces partnership in time for 2016 gymnastics meets

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – A-1 Awards and seven-time Olympic medalist, Shannon Miller, have teamed up to create a new custom line of gymnastics medals and trophies leading up to the 20thanniversary of the iconic 1996 Olympics performances in Atlanta that solidified Shannon’s place in history as the most decorated gymnast, male or female, in United States history.

Miller reflects why this line is special to her as she can remember winning her first of many awards. “I still have my very first trophy. It simply said ‘best beam’. I didn’t actually receive it for balance beam, but rather in a handstand contest with my coach. However, I spent my entire career trying to live up to that shiny gold statue. I am excited to partner exclusively with A-1 Awards for my new Dare to Dream Collection of medals and trophies! Not only are these beautifully crafted (with a bit of sparkle), but I hope they will inspire young gymnasts across the country to work hard and dream big!”

“We at A-1 Awards are pleased to team up with Shannon Miller, the most celebrated US Olympic gymnast of all time. Shannon has been inspiring young gymnasts nearly three decades.  With Shannon’s elegant and innovative Dare to Dream Collection, we hope to inspire a new generation of young athletes to Dare to Dream! This special collection was designed specifically for the upcoming invitational season.  The collection may be viewed in our new 2016 Gymnastics Catalog with 72 pages of products dedicated exclusively to the sport of gymnastics,” states Stephen L. Capper, President of A-1 Awards, Inc.

The new collection found here will be sold exclusively through A-1 Awards and will be available for sale in November 2015 just in time for the 2016 competition season.
