Akash Modi, an alternate to the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team and a famous gymnast who had previously run a successful fundraiser on SPONSOR.ME will be defending his parallel bars crown at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Boston, which starts today. 

“The last quad helped a lot of us new guys get to the level we’re at because we were always chasing those legends of the sport,” said Modi to USA Gymnastics, referring to the two-time Olympian Samuel Mikulak and the World Championships Bronze medalist Yul Moldauer, with whom Modi will be competing for a place on the World Team. “Now we are the front runners and we have their steps to follow in.”

Mikulak will be going after a fifth crown - something that only Blaine Wilson managed to do before him by winning 5 crowns in a row between 1996-2000.

“I wouldn’t say it’s something I don’t think about,” he said to USA Gymnastics. “It would definitely be a nice addition, but I don’t think that’s what I’m trying to accomplish through my gymnastics. I’m trying to look into the world scene a little more and if this title comes along in the process, that’s a cherry on top.” 

On the women's side, Olympic Champion Simone Biles as well as Ragan Smith and Riley McCuscer will be competing for the crown. 

This is the U.S. National Team qualification event as well as the World Championships Team Selection Event. This autumn's World Championships in Qatar will be the first global team event since the Olympics.

SPONSOR.ME rolls out a new process for faster and better service. 

We are excited to announce that we have updated our payout systems to let you request the money you’ve collected on SPONSOR.ME immediately after your fundraiser has ended! 

We understand that timing is crucial when it comes to getting the funds you need to book travel, participate at international competitions or attend championships. So, we’ve listened to your feedback and changed the process to help you get the money you need, when you need it.

The new payout process:

  1. The moment your fundraiser has ended, please navigate to the Campaign Payout page and upload your ID in Step 2 (we’ll get back to you to ask you to submit a W9 form)
  2. Request payout of the funds you’ve collected on SPONSOR.ME by clicking “Payout” (we’ll deduct service fees automatically);
  3. Our team will approve the payout within 24 hours of your request and transfer the money to your bank account.

You’ll receive the money as soon as your bank clears the payment (usually, within 5 working days).

The 2018 MLB All Star Game (ASG) is right around the corner! This year's MidSummer Classic is set to take place at Nationals Park, making it the fourth time returning to the nation's capital, and the first one since 1969. 

Did your favorite players make the cut? Here are a few quick and fun facts about the MLB All Star Game!

  • The first All Star Game is held in Chicago's Comiskey Park, with legendary Babe Ruth hitting the first home run in ASG history.
  • Only 4 ASGs have gone into extra innings: 1987, 1994, 2002, 2017
  • Home field advantage has alternated between the National and American leagues until 2003. Since then, the league that wins the World Series has been given the right to become the home team.
  • Ichiro Suzuki is the only player to have hit an inside-the-park home run in an ASG. He won MVP honors as well at the same ASG in 2007.
  • In 2017, Yadier Molina became the oldest catcher to have hit the ball out of the park at an ASG, at 34 years, 363 days old. The previous record holder was Yogi Berra at 34 years, 83 days old in 1959.
  • In 2017, Robinson Cano hit a game-winning home run in a pitching-dominated game. The pitch to Cano was thrown by Wade Davis, a member of the reigning World Champions, Chicago Cubs. Interestingly, he was the lone representative for the Cubs in the ASG.

 

The Closing Ceremony of the 2018 Mediterranean Games in Tarragona, Spain took place on July 1, bringing an amazing spectacle of sport to an end. The Games, which spanned the week of June 22-July 1, brought together more than 4500 athletes representing 26 countries in 28 sports and 244 individual contests. 

Italy, which fielded 419 athletes, more than any other country, dominated the event and brought home 156 medals including 56 gold. Host country Spain finished 2nd in the overall medal count, followed by Turkey, France and Egypt.

The Mediterranean Games provides an unbelievable platform for athletes to compete on an international stage. Through sport, athletes show that people from all walks of life and society are able to compete respectfully and fairly. Each country fields their best athletes in competition and afterwards, throughout the week, men and women live together in an open athlete village. The opportunity to compete brings with it opportunities to meet and mingle with others who share similar passions from all over the the Mediterranean Region.

SPONSOR.ME offers athletes from many of the Mediterranean Games Countries such as Spain, France, Italy, Croatia and Portugal the opportunity to fundraise via social media so that they can train for and attend events such as these.

We at SPONSOR.ME salute and congratulate all of the athletes from the 2018 Mediterranean Games!
