Gabrielle Douglas Finds Inspiration in Iowa

It's not uncommon to be inspired by the 2012 Olympic Champion, Gabrielle Douglas.  Just some of her exceptional achievements include being the first American gymnasts in history to win the Olympic All-Around and Team Gold in 2012, Subway Sportswoman of the Year, Nickelodeon's 2014 Kids' Choice Sports Award for Best Female Athlete, and the YoungStars Award at the 2013 BET Awards.  With a long list of accomplishments, it is no wonder why she has inspired thousands of athletes worldwide; however, there is one young gymnast who has given this Olympic Champion the inspiration to keep pressing forward.

Gabrielle Douglas with Amarissa at Iowa StateGabby Douglas with Amarissa

Amarissa Mauricio, a 13-year-old aspiring gymnast, was passionately pursuing her dream to become like Gabby Douglas until she was diagnosed with Lupus, an incurable autoimmune disease that attacks vital organs. The doctors told her she would no longer be able to continue participating in gymnastics. The devastation was almost unbearable as she saw her dreams fade away, and her wish to meet Gabby Douglas grow dim.

News of Amarissa's situation reached Gabby and she immediately jumped into action to help.  Before she knew it, she was headed out to Iowa State to meet Amarissa and spend some time in the gym with her. The day consisted of these athletes working on different balance beam skills, trying on Gabby's gymnastics grips from the 2012 Olympics and even witnessing first hand some of Gabby's Olympic floor routine. The highlight of the day came when Gabrielle Douglas put one of her Olympic Gold medals on Amarissa and had her stand on top of a block to reenact the podium award ceremony. Later that day, Gabby gave this young athlete two of her signature leotards as a reminder to never give up. One of the leotards was our Lemon Lime Gabrielle Leotard E2602 with matching Lemon Lime Sparkle Gabby Workout Shorts E2601 and the other from her summer collection, the Gabrielle Gypsy Wave Gymnastics Leotard E2484, so they could match when they went to the gym.

Gabby tells NBC, “[Amarissa] is a huge inspiration to me, to remember to keep fighting if things get hard, if things get tough.” Amarissa is an inspiration to all, and reminds us to never give up on our dreams. 

Every season, Gabby Douglas designs new gymnastics leotards so her fans can find inspiration in the exclusive prints, flattering style lines, and exquisite embellishments. Click here to see the newest selection of Gabby Douglas Signature gymnastics apparel, and find your inspiration today.

2014 Secret U.S. Classic Competitive Leotard Preview

Excitement mounts as the 2014 Secret U.S. Classic in Chicago, IL fast approaches!  Over 70 athletes from 20 states will compete at this prestigious event, including 2012 Olympic Team Gold medalist, Kyla Ross, and 2013 World Champion, Simone Biles!  GK is proud to outfit more Elite athletes attending the 2014 US Classic than any other gymnastics brand in a Special Order Long Sleeve Gymnastics Leotard of their choice!  To get ready, we are giving you a first look at what these Elite athletes will be sporting this year!

Not only will Ross' technical skills captivate the crowds, but this gorgeous Stellar Long Sleeve Leotard 9579 will be a sight to remember.  This stunning competitive v neck leotard features eye-catching colors in Wild Sangria Sparkle with contrasting Black Mystique sleeves.  Magenta Nylon/Spandex makes up the bodice as steel Mystique style lines accent the wrap around design.  Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS are strategically placed to sparkle under the spotlights at every angle.

 

 

Biles will be breathtaking in our Super Sweetheart Competition Leotard 7574.  Black mesh with Brown Shadowproof lining dominates the top, while White Opalescence shimmers across the bodice.  An intricate side cutout designed with Black and Princess Pink Sparkle Hologram creates a thinning silhouette.  The Princess Pink accent across the faux sweetheart neckline add the right touch of color and class to this exquisite long sleeve leotard.  Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS are scattered throughout for a shine almost as bright as Biles' talent! 

 

Texas Dreams will be hotter than the southern sun in a sublimated 3/4 sleeve leotard.  Blazing flames are printed on FoilTek fabric for sensational sheen as Gold Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS embellish the deep v neck line. White Mesh sleeves and a White Mystique upper bodice gives this impressive leotard a soft contrast to the blazing flames.

 

 

 

Our 2014 Back To School Catalog cover model, Lexi Priessman, recently changed gyms and is now competing with Perfection Gymnastics School.  Though her home base is different, her startling style remains the same.  Look for her competing in this sporty square neck long sleeve leotard.  Sharp angles in Lime, Black, Imperial Purple and Electric Turquoise Mystique provide an artistic canvas for Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS to create a memorable sparkle and leave the crowds wanting more of this insatiable leotard.

Gabby Douglas Unveils her Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds' Wax Museum in San FranciscoGabby donated her Silver Mystique competitive gymnastics leotard that she wore in the 2012 Olympics to make her wax figure resemblance hit even closer to home. In order to gain the most accurate image of this incredible athlete, Madame Tussaud's studio artists gathered hundreds of measurements and countless photographs to use as guidelines in constructing this masterpiece.  The total process took about four months to complete and five coats of paint to perfectly match Gabrielle Douglas' skin tone.

Gabby Douglas Attended Karolyi Gymnastics Summer Camp

After two months of rigorous training with her coach, Liang Chow, the 2012 All-Around Olympic gold medalist headed off to Texas to train at the Karolyi Ranch. After an invitation from Martha Karolyi, Douglas packed up her gymnastics leotards, grabbed her grips and headed down to the official USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center in Huntsville, TX. She has shown incredible progress throughout the past two months as she trained at Chow's Gymnastics and Dance Institute. Chow speaks highly of her progress and believes she has what it takes to make a record comeback! She told GK, "It was great being invited back to the National Team Training Camp! I truly missed being away, and it was awesome reuniting with everyone.
