Continuing its charitable tradition, GK will donate 10% of sales of each leotard sold to the Collegiate Development Fund within the National Gymnastics Foundation. Made in the USA, the leotards are available for sale now.
Gracing the pages of this Special Edition Catalog are GK gymnastics leotards designed by Champions for Champions. The most well-known names in Women’s Gymnastics history share the inspiration behind their leotard design in their own words. All five Legends have worn and endorsed GK leotards, and some of them even sell GK gymnastics apparel in their own gyms.
Svetlana Boguinskaia - Svetlana burst on to the gymnastics scene at an early age and remained there, as a champion, for an unprecedented three Olympic games.
When Svetlana Boguinskaia competed as a gymnast, she preferred leotards with a dark color on the bottom and a light color on top to create stand-out contrast. Being a study in contrasts herself on the competition floor, the combination suited Svetlana well. Svetlana’s gymnastics were a contrast of graceful artistry and intense drama.
That same grace and drama served as inspiration for her 2012 GK Legends Collection Leotard. Her design inspiration comes to life with Black Mystique throughout the body and Charcoal Mystique and Berry Mystique near the neckline in a rolling flame design on the front and back. Svetlana said the “berry, silver and black combination looks great together and makes a perfect leotard for gymnasts of all ages.”
Kim Zmeskal - Kim was the first-ever American woman to become All-Around World Champion in 1991 and is still winning today.
Kim’s inspiration for the design of her 2012 GK Legends Collection Leotard came from the logo design of the 1991 World Championships. Kim said, “During that competition, I experienced the highest of highs with an amazing American audience cheering me and my teammates on all the way! Winning the All-Around title and toppling the Romanians for a Team Silver are tremendous memories that have not faded one bit! The color blue, besides being a favorite of mine, is synonymous with being the best, which is a constant, driving force in my life."
Shannon Miller - Shannon, the most decorated gymnast in US Olympic history, is a gymnastic legend both individually and as a member of the US Women’s Gymnastics Team, fondly referred to as the “Magnificent Seven.”
It’s no surprise that when asked about the design inspiration for her 2012 Legends Collection Leotard for GK, Shannon chose a “modern take” on the 1996 Olympic team leotard. US Olympic athletes are an inspiration when they wear the red, white and blue and represent their country with grace under pressure, in heartbreak, and in success.
