GK Elite Sportswear- Gymnastics Leotards and Apparel
This year's World Gymnastic Championships will be held in London for the first time. By tradition, these World Championships give a clear idea about the transformation in the ranks of stars - which established gymnasts will stay and defend their positions for 2012 and which new names should be noted in advance of the London Games. London 2009 will be a benchmark event for the new Olympic cycle (2009 - 2012) leading to the Olympic Games, which London will host in 2012, with The O2 hosting both the Basketball and Gymnastic events.

The Championships will see outstanding performances from the best gymnasts in the world representing China, Japan, USA, Romania, Russia, Poland, France, PRK, Korea, Croatia, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, along with many other strong gymnastics nations.

GK has also partnered with Universal Sports, who will supply live web coverage of the prelims and championships, limited broadcast television coverage throughout the US & worldwide, and provide on-demand video replays on their website, www.universalsports.com.
