Hundreds of the nation's top Level 10 gymnasts competed in the 2013 Women's U.S. Junior Olympic National Championships, May 10-11, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.  As usual, GK Elite set the stage for competition by outfitting the gymnasts from top to bottom in gorgeous training tanks, long sleeve competitive leotards and warm ups.  Kim Riley, USA Gymnastics Women's Program Director of Athlete and Coaching Programs, loved GK's leotards.  "The girls looked great in their leotards!" said Riley.



Every region gave each gymnast a GK V-Neck Tank Leotard (Style WL355) in Black Nylon/Spandex with a sleek mystique accent and adorned with a silver hologram sequinz number to identify their region.  For competition, gymnasts wore GK's Athletic V-Neck Competition Leotard (Style 4871) in Black Nylon/Spandex, as shown below.  Depending on the gymnast's region, their leotard was complemented with a colorful Mystique fabric and their region sparkled down the right sleeve in Silver Hologram Sequinz.  The leotard featured below makes a statement in its Grape Mystique and Silver Mystique fabrics.  Each Level 10 gymnast's look was completed with a GK Elite Form Fit Team Coordinate Jacket (Style L662N) made with comfortable Cotton/Poly Super Soft Needle Text Fabric with white imprinting and a pair of Form Fit Team Coordinate Pants (Style L663N).


This year, GK even outfitted the meet volunteers.  "I really appreciate that GK Elite outfitted the army of volunteers here at the meet, said Riley.  "It made them so easy to find when we needed something."

T&T Gymnast Flies in GK Leotard

Is it possible for a girl to fly?  If you are Charlotte Drury, the answer is YES! Charlotte, a Senior Elite Trampolinist and member of the USA Gymnastics National T&T Team knows what it takes to achieve her level of success and stands by the fact that GK truly is the Choice of Champions.

For any trampolinist, the need for leotards to fit long, slender, athletic body types is a necessity, and if a leo doesn't fit like a GK, then it has no business in the high-intensity world of T&T. However, for this 16-year-old from Laguna Niguel, there is one more extremely important factor... if you are going to win, WIN IN STYLE! Charlotte loves the flattering GK leotard designs and the comfort they provide. 

Charlotte was very excited to design a competition leotard for this year and the help she received from her GK Gymnastics Sales Rep, Kiana Ross, made the process easy and fun.  Charlotte's leotard is GK's Stunning Swirl Competition Leotard 9549, a long sleeve gymnastics leo featuring a classic neckline & scoop back with exquisite swirl design on the bodice and back.  Charlotte modified the sleeves to a comfortable 3/4 length and then chose White Mystique, Navy Mystique, and Steel Mystique fabrics.  The combination is beautiful and Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS add the perfect finishing touch. 

Charlotte and her teammates at World Elite Gymnastics have an exciting road ahead and GK is exited & proud to be a part of it and will be cheering them on along the way!

Cheraw Gymchamps Choose GK for Competition

The Cheraw Gymchamps Gymnastics Team is part of the Cheraw Gymnastics Program in Cheraw, South Carolina.  Approximately 60 senior and junior team members make up the team which competes all over South Carolina.  The Gymchamps recently debuted their new GK gymnastics leotards for competition.  Vicki Walker, Cheraw Gymnastics Head Coach & Director, said, "Cheraw Gymnastics proudly chose to use GK again for our competitive gymnastics attire because of the great customer service and competitive pricing! I was looking for a new team leotard over the summer and met GK Gymnastics Sales Representative, Amanda Banks, at the Region 8 Congress in Nashville. She was so patient with me as I changed my mind almost every day on the leotard colors. Even when I returned home, she helped me every step of the way as we designed the leotard, sized my team, and placed our order. She even helped me get dealer status so that I could order the same design in a sleeveless leotard for my junior team at the dealer price! When the girls saw the new leotards for the first time, their response was priceless! I can honestly say that I have a very happy Junior and Senior team! We recently debuted our new leotards in competition and we got wonderful comments from coaches, judges, and parents! I tried two other companies before GK and I can honestly say that GK provides the best customer service and their Sales Reps are top notch! I am thankful to have GK and Amanda Banks outfitting my Gym Champs team!"
For the Senior Team, Cheraw's chose GK's Asymmetrical Flame Competition Gymnastics Leotard 7546, an asymmetrical competitive gymnastics leotard featuring two-tone design, off-set back, and a unique binding strap on the right shoulder.  For fabrics, Cheraw chose Black Mystique, Blue Raspberry Mystique, and Vinca Mystique.  Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS were added to the binding strap and body appliques.  The same fabrics were then used to create a custom tank gymnastics leotard for the Junior Team.  The tank leo design echoes the style of the long sleeve competition leotard with an asymmetrical neck, binding strap, and body appliques. 

Do you have a multi-level team that you need to outfit for competition season?  Check out GK's Special Order competitive leotards styles here.  Another option to check out is the In Stock Competitive Collection.  Need some help?  Find your local GK Sales Representative here and they will be happy to walk you through the process.
