When Simone Biles and Aly Raisman compete in today's Olympic gymnastics all-around final, they'll be sporting a bit of Pennsylvania flair.
Lead designer Jeanne Douglass told NBC 10 that the U.S. flag was her inspiration for this year's attire.
"I wanted to use it as literally as possible, but also highlighting their bodies," she told the television station.
Some of the team leotards (each Olympic gymnast gets eight for competition and 12 for training) will have nearly 5,000 Swarovski crystals, the New York Times reported earlier this month.
"It's difficult for me to imagine how we could get more crystals on," Kelly McKeown, GK's executive vice president for design and corporate relations, told the newspaper
A week before the Games started, NBC declared that the U.S. team was "already winning the fashion Olympics." And the gymnasts and USA Gymnastics officials seemed more than happy with their outfits.
The Reading business, a leading gymnastics apparel company that also makes cheerleading attire, has manufactured outfits for multiple past U.S. Olympic teams.
