Follow LIVE action @intlgymnast and @USA_GymEvents. Or International Gymnast Magazine on Facebook. Or LIVE on Gymnastics Examiner.

Jake Dalton of Reno, Nev., who won the 2011 Winter Cup Challenge, has been added to the field for the 2011 AT&T American Cup, an International Gymnastics Federation World Cup event, which begins at 11:15 a.m. today at the Jacksonville (Fla.) Veterans Memorial Arena. He replaces Russia’s Sergey Khorokhordin, who withdrew due to injury.

Dalton joins an already impressive field that includes 2010 World all-around champion Aliya Mustafina of Russia, 2010 World all-around silver-medalist Philipp Boy of Germany, 2010 World all-around bronze-medalist Jonathan Horton of Houston and 2010 World all-around finalist Alexandra Raisman of Needham, Mass.
