Under Armour Strikes Gold With Partnership With USA Gymnastics

"GK Elite is proud to be partnering with Under Armour and USA Gymnastics for the next two Olympic cycles," said Kelly McKeown, EVP of Corporate Relations. 

Athletes and coaches will also be able to utilize the brand's newest innovation, Armour39™, which is the first-of-its-kind digital performance monitoring system that measures an athlete's heart rate, calories burned, workout intensity and WILLpower™ score, which reflects an athlete's overall effort during a workout session.

USA Gymnastics athletes and staff will first appear in Under Armour® apparel at the upcoming AT&T American Cup Saturday, March 2.

In addition to USA Gymnastics, Under Armour outfits several winter Olympic sports and athletes, including US Speedskating, Bobsled and Skeleton in the United States, Canada Snowboard, and Olympic skiing gold-medalist Lindsey Vonn. Under Armour first became involved in gymnastics with its sponsorship of Alicia Sacramone, who is a 2008 Olympic team silver medalist and won 10 World medals during her career.
