We were honored to have 2014 U.S. National Team Members, Ashton Locklear of Everest Gymnastics and MyKayla Skinner of Desert Lights Gymnastics visit the GK Elite headquarters in Reading, PA earlier this month. While they were here, these Elite athletes got a behind the scenes tour and modeled some competition leotards for our 2015 catalog.
Ashton Locklear knew from a young age that she wanted to be involved in the sport of gymnastics. At age two, she could be found in the audience of her sister's tumbling and trampoline competitions imitating the movements of the older gymnasts. Her parents realized there was no keeping this ambitious athlete away from her passion and natural talent for gymnastics. Now, this Elite athlete is part of the 2014 World gold medalist team where she placed an impressive fourth place on the uneven bars.
MyKayla Skinner also followed in her big sisters' footsteps and at the age of four began gymnastics. Her natural born talent in the sport quickly brought her to an Elite level where she became a member of the 2014 World gold medalist team and vault bronze medalist. Her other World accomplishments include fourth place on the floor at finals and sixth All Around in the preliminaries.
We loved having these talented gymnasts model for our catalog and enjoyed getting to know them. We look forward to their continued contributions to the sport of gymnastics and can't wait to see what 2015 holds in store for them!
