After months of deliberating a handful of offers, World bronze medalist Yul Moldauer has signed a gymnastics apparel deal with GK Elite.

Now that I am grown up and have been given the opportunity to join this brand, it’s truly a blessing.” Moldauer said. “Being able to represent our country wearing GK will allow me to feel comfortable and confident. So, thank you GK for allowing me to join a special brand that has been with me, and now continue with me as I continue my gymnastics career.”
