Jonathan Horton proved himself to be the most dominant force in Men's Gymnastics in the US last summer at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Jonathan earned a Silver medal on his signature routine, the high bar, as well as a Bronze medal with his fellow USA team mates in the team competition.
This agreement is designed to help Horton continue to develop his skills as one of the premier male gymnasts in America today.
"GK has been outfitting top athletes since 1989," said GK Elite President and founder Sallie Weaver. "Jonathan is certainly one of the most recognized and most promising athletes in U.S. Men's gymnastics today."
"Medaling in Beijing this year at the Olympics was a dream come true," remarked Horton. "I have always chosen to compete in GK. The fit of the apparel is so important to my performance and wearing GK gives me one less thing to be concerned about! I am so proud to endorse a company who truly cares about the athletes and demonstrates genuine concern for their performance and needs"
