2014 Junior Olympic Gymnasts Look Stunning in GK Gymnastics Apparel

It was an exciting week at the 2014 Junior Olympic Championships in Jackson, MS, and we loved being a part of it. We saw an incredible display of talent, charisma, and spell binding routines that left us wanting more. As is our tradition, GK outfitted these incredible gymnasts from top to bottom in gorgeous training tanks, long sleeve competitive leotards and gymnastics warm up apparel. Congratulations to all the level 10 gymnasts that competed this year! You are certainly a cut above the rest.

Each region looked astounding as they prepared to compete in a V-neck Long Sleeve Competitive Leotard. Depending on the gymnast's region, their leotard was complemented with colorful Mystique fabric as their region sparkled down the right sleeve in Silver Hologram Sequinz. Striking Silver Mystique zig zag trim detailed the front of this long sleeve gymnastics leotard. Every region also received a Black Nylon/Spandex V-neck Tank Leotard WL392  with a stunning Mystique fabric accent complete with Silver Hologram Sequinz that splashed across the front to highlight their region number. In between routines, these incredible athletes stayed warm in our comfortable  Fitted Micro Knit Warm-Up Jacket L1037 and our Fitted Micro Knit Warm-Up Pants L1038. Stylish, comfortable and functional, these super soft and lightweight, yoga fit gymnastics warm-ups are made of a Black micro knit sport fabric with body slimming features.

The girls from Region 6 just want to have fun as they worked their way into a pyramid for a picture perfect pose. Even as the competition got intense, they remained in good spirits and brought their region to the top. They know that keeping a balanced focus between fun and keeping a competitive edge is essential to their success. These young athletes are sporting our custom Junior Olympic V-neck Long Sleeve in Black Nylon/Spandex with Electric Turqoise Mystique fabric to add a pop of color.

GK is Proud to Sponsor the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational

GK is proud to sponsor the 4th Annual Kalon Ludvigson Invitational in Salt Lake City, UT this weekend, in support of Kalon Ludvigson, one of our GK Gymnastics catalog models, and the most decorated Trampoline and Tumbling athlete in the world. The meet will incorporate all levels of competition in Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini Trampoline.

Kalon began his gymnastics career at the age of 8, and in just 10 years time, earned his first US National Championship title in Trampoline and Tumbling in 2006. He defended this title for the next seven years, while also earning 20 World Cup and World Championship medals and setting 2 world records. Then, in August 2013 after winning his final US National Championship, a neck injury during training left him paralyzed below his chest. Since his accident, Kalon's treatments and strength-training has kept him out of the public eye... until now. 

This year's Kalon Ludvigson Invitational is going to be absolutely amazing! It will be Kalon's first public appearance since his accident, and his friends, fans and teammates are rallying to support him at this special gymnastics meet. Because of Kalon's superior standing in the gymnastics industry, we're going to see a lot of 2012 World Champion Team members and finalists, as well as World Age Group Champions and former Olympians, many of them competing at the meet. All of these gymnasts are eager to support Kalon, who by the way, was just nominated as the T&T Representative for the USA Gymnastics Athletes Council.

As part of a fundraiser for Kalon's medical costs, fans purchased Keep Calm and Pray for Kalon t-shirts, that they will wear during the final events on Saturday. This supportive gesture should be an amazing and emotional gift of inspiration for Kalon! If you'd like to help offset the costs of Kalon's medical bills, contributions are being collected through The Kalon Ludvigson Fund.

So what part does GK play in this event? All of the organizing staff at the Kalon Ludvigson Invitational will wear a black and white warm-up jacket and warm-up pant from GK. The female staff will look polished and comfortable in a GK Women's Woven Warm-Up Jacket with Piping L1043 and a Women's Woven Black Pant L1046. The Male staff will wear Men's Woven Warm-Up Jacket with Piping L1042 and Men's Gymnastics Warm-Up Pants L1045. Both men's and women's warm-up jackets are White Polyester with Black style lines under the arms and on the shoulders and our classic GK logo on both the back and the right chest. The Kalon Ludvigson Invitational logo is embroidered on the left. Paired with the relaxed fit pant, this gymnastics warm-up combo will look terrific on the men and women helping out at this trampoline and tumbling event on Saturday.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our GK booth on Saturday to support a fellow champion, Kalon Ludvigson, who has given all of us so much to aspire to already.

GK Outfits Nastia Liukin Cup Participants

The Nastia Liukin Cup in Greensboro, NC has finally begun! Throughout the weekend, you'll see photographs of Nastia Liukin qualifiers published across social media boards everywhere. Here's a sneak peak at the apparel that GK donated to the event.

The Senior team will be wearing a long sleeve competitive leotard, as well as a GK tank leo. The competitive leotard is beautifully designed in Black Mystique with a Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS lined sweetheart styling and a faux halter neckline. The shoulders and arms are dressed in Berry Mesh, enhanced with packed jewels around the neckline. The tank leotard is fashioned almost identically to the long sleeve leo with the same mystique and mesh fabrics, and sweetheart, halter design with an extended faux scoop and halter back styling.

The Juniors will compete in a long sleeve and tank leotard identical in styling to the Senior team leotards, only in contrasting color combinations. For these athletes, gymnastics competition wear will feature a Berry Mystique bodice, and faux halter design, with Black Mesh shoulder and sleeve lines. Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS line the sweetheart chest line, and a gorgeous spray of heat transferred jewels adorn the the neckline.

 

In addition to competition and tank leos, GK has also provided all the Nastia Liukin competitors with warm-up jackets and gymnastics pants that coordinate with the rest of their gymnastics wardrobe. The Fitted Micro Knit Warm-Up Jacket L1037 is a lightweight, yoga-fit jacket, comprised of a black, micro knit fabric, a full front zipper, and a mock neck. Both stylish and comfortable, this gymnastics warm-up jacket features a sleek media pocket on the upper right arm, two secure zipper pockets, and an elegantly jeweled gymnasts and Nastia Luikin Cup Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS emblem on the back.

The matching Micro Fitted Micro Knit Warm-Up Pants L1038 are just as stylish and comfortable in the same micro knit sport fabric. The Nastia Liukin gymnasts will look tall and slim in this boot cut pant which features a sleek back zipper pocket and low-rise waste band.

The anticipation is killing us, so let the games begin, as they say! Be sure to share all of your favorite Nastia Liukin photos with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @gkelite #GKlovesNLCup.

Twisters Gymnastics Prepares to Compete in GK Leotards

Twisters Gymnastics of the Twisters Sports Center in Mountain View, California prepares to compete in the GK sponsored The Spirit of the Flame Challenge in Santa Clara, CA this year in their GK 3/4 sleeve leotards. The Sports Center, their home gym, takes great pride in their gymnastics team, stating, "Gymnastics is considered by many as the foundation of all sports because it enhances a child’s strength, coordination, and flexibility. Studies have shown that it also improves social and cognitive skills that are so important to your child’s growth. Twisters makes it fun to grow and learn by providing positive and safe instruction taught by qualified coaches who are safety certified." Twisters switched to GK this year and they are thrilled with their new competitive leotards and warm-up apparel.

The Twisters ordered all of their gymnastics competition apparel online, using our Special Order Design Studio. This allowed them to visualize their color selections as they placed their order, and to see all of the available options in jewels, embroidery and fabrics. In doing so, they ordered an Abstract Lightning gymnastics Leotard 9575 in Black Mystique, Orangeade Sparkle, Seaglass Sparkle and Black Mesh. This colorful, asymmetrical v neck leotard from our Special Order Design Studio boasts shimmering fabrics, inspiring zig-zag design lines, and brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that accent the leo design and absorb the transparency of the left mesh sleeve. The bold combination is striking!

They coordinated their warm-up suits with their competitive leotards by incorporating the Seaglass Sparkle into their Black DryTech Classic Gymnastics Warm-Up Jacket 8756 and Fitted Warm-Up Gymnastics Capris 8787. The jacket is a form-fitting style, featuring contrasting Seaglass Sparkle side panels and the Twister's name spelled out in beautiful Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. The matching, fitted capris feature a low-rise fold over waist band for added comfort. Another great options for cooler temperatures is the GK Low-Rise Gymnastics Warm-Up Pants 8731, as seen on your right. This gymnastics pant offers the same great features as the capri, but with more coverage.

Twisters will be competing later this month at The Spirit of The Flame Challenge, the weekend of Feb. 28, in Santa Clara, CA. This meet is sponsored by GK and each participant will receive a custom GK sublimation leotard as their gift. Stay posted for further information.

Olympic and World Champion, Olga Korbut, Looks Great in GK

GK Recently found this great photo of Olga Korbut in a GK warm-up and we wanted to give her a proper shout out by paying tribute to her successful gymnastics career.

The year was 1969 when Korbut entered her first adult Soviet national championship and introduced back somersaults on both the beam (Korbut Salto) and the bars (Korbut Flip) to gymnastics. Although the judges disagreed with the changes she was making to the sport, the crowd instantly fell in love with her. Her bold dazzling moves, some that have never been replicated, took Korbut to the 1972 Munich Olympics where she earned 3 Gold Medals and the Montreal Olympics in '76 where she brought home her fourth Gold medal and stole the hearts of fans throughout the world. Korbut was an instant star!  Her smile was sweet and contagious; she was bright, daring, and easy to love. Perhaps that's why she acquired so many positives titles. After the '72 Olympics, ABC named her "Athlete of the year"; the United Nations named her "Woman of the Year" in 1975 for her ability to bring the world together; and in 1994 Sports Illustrated listed her as one of the top athletes in the last 40 years.

As you can imagine, there's so much more to tell about this amazing woman, but the point is, she's helped to shape our sport, and for that, we love her.

Byers Gymnastics Center's Level 10 Competitors Look Fab in GK Competitive Leotards

It was so nice to see Byers Gymnastic Center's Level 10 Team from Elk Grove, CA competing at Red Heart Invitational in Fremont CA in January! They were covered in GK and they looked gorgeous!

Byers really made an impact at the meet in January with their unique version of GK's Stunning Vine Wrapped Leotard 9558 that they modified with 3/4 sleeves.  This is a team that really likes to stand out in a crowd, so they adorned themselves in our Mystique fabric which offers a superb fit and gives the leotard a sophisticated glow. The Berry and Black Mystique leotard and design details are accented with a Berry Mesh sleeve and shoulder line and intensified with a splash of Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS for a radiant head to toe look. 

Byers Elk Grove ladies and coaches also love to warm up and cool down in GK. They keep warm and comfortable in Low-Rise Gymnastics Warm-Up Pants 8731, and Sporty Raglan Spring Warm-Up Jacket 8777. They are truly a GK team!

You'll have an opportunity to view this fabulous women's competitive leotard for yourself, along with our newest collection of Spring leotards, at Byers Invitational at the McClellan Convention Center in Sacramento,CA March 7-9. We look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, prepare for your next big meet by shopping our Special Order Design Studio to give your team a prominent, unforgettable look.
