Gabby Douglas Tells GK About her Movie, her Comeback and her Leotards

Gymnastics fans everywhere watched the Gabrielle Douglas inspired Lifetime movie, "Dreams of Gold," back in early February 2014 and became even bigger fans of the 2012 All-Around Olympic Gold Medalist.  After all of the excitement from the movie died down and Gabby has returned to training at Chow's Gymnastics in Des Moines, Iowa, we were able to grab a few moments of her precious time to ask her how she feels about the movie, her comeback and her leotards.


GK:  We were so excited to watch your Lifetime movie on Television, Gabby.  How exciting!  How involved were you in the writing and production of your story?
GD:  I worked a lot on the script with my family. Lifetime and Sony were awesome to work with during the whole process. I also worked with the Director and one of the Executive Producers on some of the casting and was able to give tips on my gymnastic skills and poses.

GK:  A lot of actors say that they never watch their own movies. Although someone else played your part, did you sit down and watch the Gabby Douglas Story on TV?
GD:  I did. I was actually in New York City when it aired because I was a Special Correspondent for Inside Edition at Super Bowl XLVIII.  I had a small viewing party in my hotel room with my mom, my publicist, and another friend. My siblings had a viewing party at home in Los Angeles.

GK:  Were there any parts in the movie that you felt were significantly dramatized for viewing purposes?
GD:  We only had 80 minutes to tell my story, so we had to condense some parts of my gymnastic career due to the time constraints.  Actually, my life story contained so much drama that we couldn't fit it all into the movie.

GK:  In the movie, Gabby all but gives up on her dream right at the height of her career, before the Olympics.  Is that true?  If so, is there a precise moment when you told yourself that you’re going to continue?
GD:  That was totally true!  I told the story in detail in my book, Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith.  My family came to Iowa to celebrate the Holidays and my birthday with me in December 2011.  The time flew by so fast that before I knew it, they were leaving to return to Virginia.  I wanted to go with them because I was so homesick.  I missed them so much!  I told my mom that I wanted to quit just seven months before the 2012 Olympic Games. About two weeks after they left in January, I decided that I would stay and fight for my dream.

GK:  We’ve had some fans ask us about the leotards worn in the movie. Which ones were your most and least favorite?
GD:  I liked all of the gymnastics leotards in the movie. I thought it was cool how they recreated some of the competitive leotard styles that I actually wore during competitions.

GK:  What is your overall feeling about the Gabby Douglas story, as it was portrayed on television to the world?
GD:  I am very pleased with the movie!  So many people have told me how inspirational it was, and that was exactly the message that I wanted the move to tell.  It makes me happy that it touched so many lives!  It's very humbling to know that you can have a positive effect on others.

GK:  Has movie stardom changed your life in anyway?
GD:  In some ways it has and in other ways it has not.  I am still the same person I have always been, but now I know that many young people see me as a role model.  It is very important to me that they know that they can accomplish their goals the same way that I accomplished mine.  I think the biggest change is that I had a lot of wonderful opportunities after the Olympics, and they all required a lot of traveling!

GK:  We’ve seen you make appearances on a Disney Channel show, as well as a sitcom.  Do you plan on being in any other shows in the future?
GD:  I really enjoy acting and would like to do more in the future. For now, I have had to turn down some amazing appearances and acting opportunities so that I can focus on my training.

GK:  Your first Olympic appearance was quite a rush for the entire country.  What do you hope to accomplish at the next Olympics if you attend, and is there anything you would do differently to prepare?
GD:  I really want to upgrade my skills and add more difficulty to my routines. I think the way that I prepared last time gives me an excellent example of how I need to prepare this time. I will definitely do some things differently. My hope is to be a part of Team USA again and to continue to inspire others to pursue their goals.

GK:  And lastly, your Signature Collection of gymnastics leotards has been a HUGE hit with gymnasts across the country.  Tell us what inspires your design ideas and which styles you personally prefer to wear when training in the gym.
GD: I'm inspired by so many things!  My Summer collection is filled with bright colors, bold prints and lately a lot of sparkling Sequinz designs.  It's my hope that the styles are empowering to the athletes who choose to wear them.  I personally wear all of my Gabby Douglas leotards to the gym.  It's hard to pick which ones are my favorite when I love them all!  In the photo above, I'm wearing one of my signature leotards from Back to School 2013.

A big THANK YOU to Gabrielle Douglas for taking the time to tell us more about the movie.  We'll be here cheering for you on your journey to Rio 2016!  If you are a fan of Gabby, be sure to check out the latest gymnastics leotards from the Summer Gabrielle Douglas Signature Collection!  You won't be disappointed!

Ebee Price and Kyla Ross Take Over Pacific Rim Championships In Under Armour Leotards

This year's Pacific Rim Championship in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada proved to be a huge success, once again, for USA Gymnastics teams!

Ellie Black, Ebee Price and Kyla Ross at Pac Rim Championships

Congratulations to Ebee Price and Kyla Ross on their top Senior, individual and All-Around scores. Price's All-Around score of 59.900 put her in the Gold with just 1.200 points above Ross, who placed second.

The talk of the championship was Price's floor exercise, featured below, where her highly technical routine looked like a walk in the park. Afterwards, she commented that this was the highlight of the competition for her. She was also very excited she was able to lead her team to win the All-Around, while winning three out of four individual event gold medals in a competition where she has never before competed. When interviewed, Price recognized the good nature of the spectators, praising them for enjoying the entire competition as a whole, instead of rooting for one gymnast over another.

Pulling through the ranks in the Junior Division, Bailie Key gave fellow gymnasts a run for their money, as well. Her performances earned her three individual Gold Medals, an All-Around Gold, and a team Gold Medal. She's one to keep your eye on in the upcoming years.

All of the women from Team USA competed in an elegant Under Armour competition leotard, designed specifically for their team events. To learn more about Under Armour leotards, and specifically about Team USA's leos, check out our post about Team USA at Jesolo Trophy.

Custom Design Gymnastics Leotards from GK Help Texas East Set The Standard

Everything is bigger and better in Texas, which is why it was no surpirse to find GK's long sleeve competition leotards making a scene at the 2014 Metroplex Challenge! Christian Wright couldn't wait to showcase her new custom competitive leotard during her Level 8 floor routine. As she wins over the judges with her outstanding performance, the audience couldn't help but notice her elegeant ensemble that sparkled under the spotlights. With the confidence of a GK fit, Christian explains, "I love our new custom leo's and the all the fabulous bling! Our team always stands out at every meet we go to," which is why it was no doubt Texas East Gymnasts turned to GK to  maintain their standard of excellence by designing this one-of-a-kind long sleeve leotard.


TX East Custom Designed Long Sleeve Competition Leotard.


As Christian makes her way to the floor, spectators gazed at her awe-inspiring sparkling Charcoal and Ocean Mystique leotard. The rich colors showcase this bold and beautiful athlete, while broadcasting artistic designs.  The intricate swirl design in White and Ocean Mystique create an elongated silhouette, which wraps around the back to completely encompass this beautiful long sleeve leotard. SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS are perfectly placed on the sleeves to mimick a glistening evening sky, as delicate swirls wrap around her arm to tie the piece together.  Overlapping V neck angles on the front and back perfectly pair the Charcoal and Ocean Mystique fabrics together as more SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS outline the neckline in a sea of sparkle. As Chrisitan moves around the mats the leotard perfectly stretches with her without distorting a single swirl. Was it her stunning routine or perfect poise that got everyone's attention? No one knows, but one thing is for sure: no one captivates a crowd like GK.

 We wish Texas East Gymnastics the best and look forward to many more years of designing custom leotards for this exquisite team.

The Petite Pink Posse Wins Favor with Fans and Judges at Idaho State Championships in GK Tank Leotards

They call themselves the Petite Pink Posse, and all eyes swing in their direction when they compete. They're not just cuties in hot pink and sparkly silver GK tank leotards; they are the champions of the Level 3 Idaho State Championship, and they can't help but to steal your heart.

These tiny athletes consume their audience and gymnastic judges in a Swarovski Swirl Tank Leotard WL340. In Berry Mystique and Silver Mystique, this gorgeous leotard looks like it could be part of our GKids line. The look is completely appropriate and beautiful for their age. However, adorned with a different color palette the look of this tank leo changes drastically. That's what makes our special order design studio such an ingenious invention. This leotard can be ordered in your favorite fabric and color combination with or without the Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that decorated the swirling pattern in Pink Petite Posse's leotard. With a Fuschia SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS infused GK logo, these young gymnasts sparkle from top to bottom.

When browsing our Special Order Design Studio, remember to look for patterns and styles that speak to your team's personality. Colors, jewels and team logos can all be changed to refine the look, and turn it into a gymnastics leotard made just for your team. Add your impression to all your gymnastics gear, from tank leotards and competition leotards to men's compression shirts and warm up jackets. For sizing samples, design expertise and general assistance please contact your local GK Sales Manager or Customer Service.
