Male gymnasts such as David Durante showed off their quick movements and power in the Body in Flight (American) exhibition which used elite business class seats to imitate pommel horses. For his routine, David wore a GK Men's Competition Shirt style 1963 in red with white piping. Click here to explore all of the competitive men's gymnastic apparel that GK has to offer.
When we asked David Durante about his thoughts on the Venice Biennale he remarked, "Being that the Venice Beinnale is the pinnacle of the contemporary art world, it is only fitting that GK came on board to provide the gymnastics uniforms for the performers of the Body in Flight pieces. They make the best and most comfortable uniforms I've ever worn and wearing the USA across my chest again for this event brought me back to my competition days when I was a part of Team USA. They went out of their way to provide a variety of unique styles for both the men and women that brought the whole American exhibit to another level."
Olympic medalist Chellsie Memmel and other elite female gymnasts performed in the Body in Flight (Delta) exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia wearing GK Ladies' Unitards. An airline seat replica was created by the artists to represent a balance beam on which the gymnasts executed routines using their flexibility and fluidity. Chellsie performed in the unitard version of the GK Symmetrical V Neck Competition Leotard style 9559, which is featured on the cover of the 2011-2012 Competitive Wear catalog as "Nastia Liukin's Leotard Choice".
