According to Kelly McKeown, Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations and Design, “Elite Sportswear’s management, employees and their families are anxiously awaiting Olympic television coverage, so they can spot the products they had a hand in developing, sewing, embellishing, shipping, or marketing. We are so proud to give ‘Made in the USA’ an international stage.”

Having mere weeks between Olympic trials and the games, Elite Sportswear is working diligently on last minute fittings and alterations to ensure that each athlete has everything they need for London 2012. All aspects of the apparel, from product development to manufacturing down to the smallest of embellishments, take place at Elite's 30-year-old headquarters in Reading, Pennsylvania. Elite Sportswear works meticulously to provide perfect gymnastic apparel for each and every Olympian on its roster.
