My DD had the Adidas one you have pictured near the bottom of your post, in black, green & white. It ended up looking great, very athletic, and her whole team really stood out, looking crisp and sharp at every meet! Sometimes you just cannot tell until you get those things on the gymnast!

From the link I have below, it appears to me that Adidas is making the Leos for the USA team! check it out...listen for the adidas info at the end.

personally those leos in that article are horrible. they look like Prom dresses i wore in the late 90's!!!:confused:

Funny how they are still made by GK elite but with another logo. I have to say I really like the red one in the picture. DD said it had a lot of bling and that of course made it a winner. She now wants to make a trip to reading to see if she can find some seconds that resemble them. From the last olymics we got a Tank style that resembled the comeptition leos.

NO THANKS! We had to buy the Addidas (7th down 2nd across in exact colors) one last year for comp. Several times the stitching came undone along the sleeves, armpits and down the sides. My DD looks like she is wearing granny panties, it is really a full leg & not flattering at all. See my DD's pic in it under blackie6. Most had to be sent back twice! My DD didn't even have hers for 2 competitions. When our gym complained, they would not even offer a diff replacement, only a small discount. So, our team leos are GK, but we had to all buy NEW leos for comp this year. Trying Alpha Factor this time. Team leos look nice though and for the most part I like the GK brand, just not in mass special made quantity I guess.

I'm in the middle of watching the opening ceremony and I have to say whoever designed those suits the athletes are wearing has a strange idea of style. Khaki trousers, navy blazers and a white bunnet? Jeezo. Although I can't talk, the British team's weren't too stylish either.

As for leos I thought the white one Nastia wore at Trials was lovely.

Okay I recognized the pink one in the picture from the podium training so I wonder which one we will see next. I think the podium training leo was cuter than in the picture above

If you go back and look at the footage, I think you will see a rather large polo man on one side. I think they were designed by Ralph Lauren. Somebody said that they were trying to get those white hats to replace the craze of the Roots hats. I am with you, the hats were awful!!

Yeah they were designed by Ralph Lauren. I personally liked the leos. I didn't care much for the red with the big blue/yellow star on the corner, but i really liked the pink and red ones. I also liked Nastia's white one, Shawn's purple one was ok. they choose Ralph Lauren to get...MONEY! The sad but true fact of life.:D
