Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt, a GW alumnus, presented the team with a key to the city before collegiate meet.
Before the George Washington gymnastics team hit the floor of Oklahoma City’s Cox Convention Center for the Perfect 10 Challenge, Mayor David Holt helped them settle in, and awarded the team with a rare key to the city.
The Perfect 10 was a one-day women’s collegiate gymnastics event featuring GW; the University of Oklahoma; the University of Washington and Arizona State University.
Ahead of the competition, Mr. Holt, B.A. ’01, welcomed the team with a tour of his office, where he discussed his time at GW and his rise in politics. The mayor also presented the team with a key to Oklahoma City, only the fifth key he had given out since he was sworn into office nine months ago.

On the day of competition, Mr. Holt, his wife Rachel Holt, B.A. ’01, and their two children cheered the team with the GW fight song.
