GK’s newest athlete signature collection! KATELYN OHASHI - the final leotard #3 has arrived!

During her time at UCLA, Katelyn was a Four-Time Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, Pac-12 Balance Beam Champion, Pac-12 Specialist of the Year & 2018 National Championships Floor Exercise Champion. During her senior year, she received a Perfect 10 & the Floor Title at the 2019 Collegiate Challenge. Six-Time All American Gymnast. Four-Time Member of the USAG Junior National Team."(CNN) Earlier this year Katelyn Ohashi shot to fame when a video of her perfect 10 floor routine for UCLA went viral, amassing over 118 million views online. The Seattle native is regularly stopped in the street by people wanting pictures, but the "perfect 10 girl's" sudden fame has had it downsides.While the positivity and energy that shone through in her performance as she danced to Beyoncé and Tina Turner resulted in glowing praise from all over the world, Ohashi was also subjected to a number of body shaming comments on social media."I feel like, a lot of times, I've felt alone when I was going through all this stuff," Ohashi told CNN Sport's Patrick Snell."Social media portrays one side of a person that they don't mind you seeing, but the other parts are hidden and not so openly talked about."And so being that person that welcomes every person that doesn't feel 'normal' -- or whatever that means right -- with open arms and make them feel like they're not the only people. Because, trust me, everyone's going through their own things." She has a blog in which she discusses "the body-image issues athletes endure'" and for Ohashi herself, living with a rare skin disease and ulcerative colitis. She used her acceptance speech for her 2 EPSY awards for "Best Play" and "Viral Sports Moment" -- to call out body shamers, catapulting her into the world's conscience."I would definitely say I am aware, because I receive messages and it's so heartwarming to hear people reaching out -- like, 'I've been able to remove my bandages,' or 'I related so much to your blog post' and things like that," said Ohashi."Being able to help people is what I strive for. They always say, 'those 15 minutes of fame,' right? I've managed to elongate my time from one gymnastics video, which is really amazing to see."And continuing to spread this positive message to other people that might be struggling or need to hear exactly what I've been through.""
