Patterson, 16, returned from Athens this past summer with three Olympic medals, including the most prestigious title in gymnastics - the Olympic All-Around Champion - to become the first American woman to win that title since Mary Lou Retton in Los Angeles in 1984.  Patterson was also a key member of the US women's team that won the silver in the team competition - the first medal for the US women in eight years - and she earned a silver medal on the beam, her specialty.

The high-flying T.J. Maxx Tour format combines elements of cirque-style modern performance art with elite gymnastics to push the boundaries of athleticism and gymnastics to all-new levels.  Planning to perform are members of the 2004 women's U.S. Olympic Team: Patterson, Terin Humphrey, Courtney Kupets, Annia Hatch and Mohini Bhardwaj. On the men's side, team silver medalists Jason Gatson, Brett McClure and Guard Young are scheduled to compete.
