100% SWAROVSKI = 100% SPARKLE

GK uses 100% SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS on every one of our competitive leotards. The alternating facets and platinum foiling of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS create a brilliance unmatched in the industry. 

Don't take our word for it, listen to Kiana Ross, mother of Kyla Ross, member of 2012's Gold Medal winning Fierce Five. 

Kiana said, "The SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS were a vital part of the USA Gymnastics leotards. When Kyla wears GK competition leotards, I know, as her mother, how important it is for her performance that she feel confident on the competition floor.  Confidence comes from being prepared, long hours of training, having the right coach, necessary support from family and, of course, from the look, fit, quality, and design of your leotard. GK constructs gymnastics leotards with all of that in mind. When I watch Kyla in competition, I can tell who is wearing a leotard with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.  There is nothing that compares with the sparkle and shine of a GK leotard." 

Here, Kyla is wearing GK's Freedom Gymnastics Leotard 1002This elegant patriotic scoop neck gymnastics leotard in White, Ocean, and Red Mystique features 1,653 Clear, Brilliance, and Metallic Silver SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.  This leotard is part of GK's Ultimate Brilliance by Elite CollectionHowever, every gymnastics leotard in our Competitive Catalog can be embellished with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

2012 USA Gymnastics Leotards by Elite Sportswear - Stars & Stripes

Some said they saved the best for last!  The Stars & Stripes USA Gymnastics leotard made its appearance at the Women's Event Finals for Beam and Floor.  The patriotic leo was a lucky one for GK Champion Aly Raisman who took the Gold Medal on Floor and the Bronze Medal on Beam. 

The Stars & Stripe leo is an example of a new innovation in gymnastics leotards called sublimation where designs are digitally printed on poly/spandex fabrics.

This digital printing is what provided the shooting star effect on the leo.  Ruby, Clear, and Navy SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS then take the digital print to the next level adding brilliance and sparkle.

 

Now you can show your team spirit with Pride AS429 from the Everyday Champions Special Edition Catalog - the only authorized source for USA Gymnastics replica leotards.  

Pride features the same stylized stars and stripes poly/spandex design, printed on a classic tank gymnastics leotard featuring the iconic embroidered National Team circle of stars logo.  This leotard will be available through December 30, 2012.

U.S. Lawmakers Impressed With GK

On Wednesday, August 22, 2012, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey and U.S. Representative Jim Gerlach visited GK and were impressed with what they saw.  Sen. Toomey and Rep. Gerlach were given the grand tour of GK's manufacturing facility and saw first hand all of the intricate steps involved in crafting the best gymnastics apparel in the industry. 

The Lawmakers started where all GK apparel begins - in the design department.  They then walked through each department getting a glimpse of the pattern making, cutting, embellishing, sewing, and inspection processes.  Both admired the specific skill sets of GK employees necessary for crafting gymnastic apparel. Afterward, Toomey said, "Elite Sportswear shows that manufacturing is still thriving in this state and America.  [GK] is an example of a company that used innovation to target their market." 

GK is immensely proud of the fact that every one of its gymnastics leotards, for the beginner athlete or a gold medalist, is Made in the USA.  Gerlach touched on this fact as well saying, "We need to put in place the right policies that will allow [GK] to compete effectively and stay in the United States." 

To see coverage of the visit in the local news and press, check out the links below.
