For the first time ever, Motionwear gymnastics leotards will be worn by a national gymnastics team at a competitive event. Both the Russian women’s and men’s teams will debut their new competition leotards by Motionwear at the World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany which take place from October 4 – 13, 2019.

This has been a major step forward for Motionwear, which originally started as a dancewear brand in 1987 before launching its Gymnastics Division in 2002.

“Developing competitive apparel for the Russian National Team has been an amazing learning experience from both a design and manufacturing standpoint,” said Motionwear CEO Casey Hammontree. “We sourced all new fabrics to meet the demands of top-level athletes, our design team provided some of the most gorgeous products Motionwear has ever created, and our pattern makers went above and beyond to ensure fit quality met the highest standards. Swarovski® was also a major help in assisting us with embellishments as this marks the first time Motionwear has used Swarovski® Crystals to this degree.”

Going forward, Motionwear will continue to improve its quality and process for competitive gymnastics apparel and hopes to outfit more National Teams competing on the World Stage.
