For the 1996 Atlanta games, GK outfitted four Olympic teams from all over the world. As more and more teams wanted to wear GK, the demand was almost overwhelming. Teams and athletes had unique requests and made many changes, up to the last minute. In keeping with our goal of excellent service, some apparel was hand carried to Atlanta to meet those last minute needs.
GK appeared on the podium over and over again, best of all - for the Women's All Around Gold Medal - won by Lilia Podkopayeva from the Ukraine. GK outfitted the Ukrainian national team, a gymnastics powerhouse, for the next eight years.
