GK Gymnastics Apparel Model, Kalon Ludvigson, named "Hunk of the Day"

Filed under "hottie" on the 93.1 Kiss FM website in El Paso, Texas, is Kalon Ludvigson, one of GK's most recognized men's gymnastics catalog models.  In addition to his "hunkiness," Kalon is also one of the top tumblers in the United States having won 10 national titles, 15 World Cup medals, and four World Championship medals.  After a change in the Code of Points, Kalon reset the world record in October 2011 for degree of difficulty in one pass with a 13.2.  Take a look at Kalon breaking the record...

In 2009, he became the first U.S. male tumbler in a decade to win a gold medal at a World Cup event, and in 2011 he repeated that feat.  He is also the the first male tumbler to win the FIG World Cup Series for tumbling.  Kalon recently told USA Gymnastics, that despite all of his success [he] has his eyes set on achieving even more.  "I want to be world champion," he said.  Outside of the gym, Kalon is pursuing a degree in pharmacy at Idaho State University. 

Well Kalon, it doesn't hurt to look good while achieving your dreams!  Good luck on reaching your goals and congrats on being named "Hunk of the Day! 

Be sure to look for Kalon at the U.S. Elite Challenge, March 29-April 1, 2012 and in our 2011 Men's Competitive Gymnastics Catalog
