GK Congratulates Aly Raisman on earning her spot on the 2012 Women's Gymnastics Olympic Team! The Olympic Trials were so exciting! GK recently spoke to Aly at a GK photo shoot about going professional and her training schedule. We also asked Aly about what it's been like as a GK endorsed athlete so far. Here is what she shared with us about GK.
GK: What do you like about GK gymnastics leotards? Do you have a favorite that you wear time and again to the gym?
Aly: I have so many GK leotards, I love them. They are so comfortable. Personally, my favorites are the spandex material gymnastic leotards. I am at the gym for hours. I’ve got to be comfortable while training! I am very into the summer leotards, the bright pinks and blues, so cute!
GK: What was it like to be a part of the 2012-2013 Women’s Competitive Catalog shoot?
Aly: Doing the GK photo shoot was so much fun! I love to do shoots because you can be dramatic, smiley, or anything, it's up to you. It's almost like you are an actress playing a part, it's really cool. Trying on all the gymnastics leotards and getting my hair and make up done, was like playing dress up, so fun!
GK: How did you like modeling the GK SWAROVSKI COUTURE leotard?
Aly: Modeling the GK SWAROVSKI leotard was such an honor, the leotard is so beautiful. I loved it so much that when I had a chance to design a leotard for the Visa Championships I based it on the couture leotard. I had to change it because it would have been way too heavy! I never had worn a white leo before, but modeling the couture leotard made me realize how beautiful white can be and how much it pops on the floor!
GK: Anything else you’d like to say to your fans and GK fans?
Aly: I am so honored and so thrilled to be able to be a part of the GK family. GK is such a fantastic company, they have the best gymnastic leotards!
Thank you Aly for taking the time to talk to us. GK will be cheering you on - all the way to London! Check out Aly in the current GK Competitive Catalog.
