Maccabi USA celebrates Jewish Unity, Culture, and Heritage through world athletic competition. GK supplied the gymnasts of the U.S. National Team with competition leotards, workout leotards and warm-ups for the 12th Maccabi Pan Am Games held in Sao Paulo, Brazil December 26, 2011 through January 2, 2012.
Abbe Shapiro, parent of current US Gymnastics Team Member Nicole Shapiro and former 5-year member, Samantha Shapiro, said, "We were thrilled to receive the box of GK leotards! The leos and warm-ups are gorgeous! I am well aware of the stunning leotards GK has created for the U.S. National Team over the years and the leotards and warm-ups for the Maccabi Pan Am Games certainly were on par. We are very grateful for the generosity shown by GK in helping to make the Maccabi Pan Am Games a very exciting and special experience for the gymnasts!"
The athletes sported their Team USA pride in GK's Sporty Asymmetrical Comp Leo 4854 in Navy Mystique, White Sparkle and Red Mystique with Clear Crystals and GK's Sporty Cross Body Gym Leo 4858 in Navy Mystique, White Sparkle and Red Mystique with Brilliance Crystals.
