LOS ANGELES, CA – April 3, 2013 – adidas Gymnastics is pleased to announce a partnership with Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast McKayla Maroney, which will include a signature collection.
"I’m thrilled to partner with adidas and join the company’s impressive roster of sponsored athletes.” said Maroney. “I’m also excited to work with adidas to help inspire my new gymnastic leotard collection.”
A member of the 2012 Summer Olympic gold medal winning US National Team, Maroney also won Olympic silver in her signature event, the vault. She has since become an internet sensation through her “not impressed” meme. Maroney is currently training and looks to defend her title as reigning World Champion in the vault later this year at the World Championships in Antwerp, Belgium.
“McKayla Maroney is an energetic force in gymnastics whose determination will only drive her to greater success.” said Alice Chao, CEO of Elegant Sports, global licensee of adidas Gymnastics. “We are excited to work with McKayla in creating products that will help gymnasts exceed to the next level.”
Maroney is the latest gymnast to be added to the adidas Gymnastics roster. She is joining her US National Teammate, Jordyn Wieber, as well as US Mens National Team members, Jake Dalton and Danell Leyva. 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.
