ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Former Olympic gold medalist Nastia Liukin will be visiting the Twin Cities next week to promote the 2011 Visa Championships.

Liukin will be in town on Sunday and Monday to preview the big gymnastics event at Xcel Energy Center, which will take place in August.

She will lead a team of walkers in the Susan G. Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure on Sunday at Mall of America, where she will take photos with fans as well.

Liukin won the individual all-around gold medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
