Andavea Alexander, a level 10 gymnast from Carrollton Gymnastics in Georgia, had the shock of her life when she tore her labrum, bicep, and rotator cuff during training in April 2014. This aspiring gymnast quickly saw her dreams of becoming an Elite athlete crumble before her and didn't know if she would ever compete again. Despite this difficult set back, Andavea did not give up hope and continued to push the limits in physical therapy until she was better than ever. Her coach, Kelly Keown, tells us that after three months of being released she had all of her level 10 skills back and is better than ever in her GK gymnastics leotards.
Her determination and champion spirit encouraged her coach to nominate her for the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Comeback Athlete of the Year Award. To her delight, she was selected and was recognized as the Comeback Athlete for the month of December and is in the running for the Comeback Athlete of the Year Award.

As the winner, Andavea's story was featured on the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta website, and it was no surprise to see her in her favorite GK gymnastics tank leotard. When asked why she chooses GK gymnastics apparel, she tells us, "I love GK because they have such a large assortment of tank and competitive gymnastics leotards! No matter what style or color girl's leotard I need, I can always find the perfect one on their website. Whether I’m attending a camp, a competition, or a practice, I trust GK to help make me look great and feel comfortable. The main reasons I love GK is because their girl's gymnastics leotards don’t fade when washed, and I never have to worry about the fit. With GK being so reliable, I know that my gymnastics apparel is taken care of so I only have to focus on my skills!"
