GK Elite Sportswear and 1996 Olympic Women’s Gymnastics Champion, Dominique Moceanu, are pleased to announce The Go-for-Gold Challenge. GK and Moceanu have partnered for an exciting giveaway featuring GK gymnastics leotards and Moceanu’s Go-for-Gold Gymnasts book series.

The Go-for-Gold Challenge is an invitation for GK & literary fans alike to demonstrate their love of the sport of gymnastics in a fun and unique way. Beginning October 1, 2012, entrants will be challenged to recreate the cover of each book in The Go-for-Gold book series wearing a GK gymnastics leotard and upload a photograph of themselves to the GK Gymnastics Blog. At the end of the giveaway, GK will announce four randomly selected winners, one for each of the book covers. Each winner will take home an autographed copy of the four part book series.

In Moceanu’s Go-for-Gold Gymnast series, gymnastics fans will get to know Britt, the fearless dynamo whose mouth is sometimes too fast for her brain; Noelle, the quiet daughter of Romanian immigrants who sacrifices everything for gymnastics, making her the hardest worker of all the girls; Jessie, the powerhouse who starts to question her devotion to gymnastics as other demands interfere with her training; and Christina, the graceful, but sassy gymnast who is sidelined by an injury and forced to think about the role gymnastics plays in her life. Over the course of four books, the girls commit themselves to the sport and to each other as they actively pursue their gymnastics dreams.
