LOS ANGELES, CA – April 1, 2013 – adidas Gymnastics is pleased to announce a partnership with gymnast Danell Leyva, a member of the US National Team and Olympic bronze medalist.
“adidas is such a big name, and to know that they wanted to work with me, well, I guess that means something is being done right and I just have to make sure I do that something more repeatedly and maybe just a little better.” said Levya.
In 2009, Leyva became the youngest member of the US National Senior Team at the age of 17 and has had continued success both nationally and internationally. He won a bronze medal in the 2012 Summer Olympics mens’ all-around competition and he is the reigning US National parallel bars and horizontal bar champion and placed second in the all-around.
“Danell Leyva is an emerging star with a big future ahead of him. Under the guidance of his dad & coach, Yin Alvarez, he is sure to excel on the international level.” said Alice Chao, CEO of Elegant Sports, global licensee of adidas Gymnastics. “We are excited to partner with Danell and to provide him with the support to achieve his dreams.”
Leyva is the latest gymnast to be added to the adidas Gymnastics roster. Other adidas Gymnastics athletes include recently signed Jake Dalton and Jordyn Wieber. The extended adidas family includes 2010 NBA MVP Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, three‐time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers, and FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona.
adidas Gymnastics will launch a Spring/Summer 2013 range, which will be a selective offering of training and competition leotards for women, available online in mid-April and plans to expand the collection throughout the year, with mens apparel available in the coming months.
