The International Gymnastics Management Group (IGMG) announces the release of their 2012 calendar featuring Olympic medalist Chellsie Memmel – A year in the life of a gymnast.
The calendar portrays stunning photography by Dave Black showcasing Chellsie in action, along with inspirational and encouraging words from the gymnastics icon. IGMG and Chellsie have partnered with Motionwear in this effort with Chellsie featuring Motionwear gymnastics leotards in four of the calendar’s spreads.
With a total of seven World and Olympic medals, Chellsie Memmel is tied as the fifth most decorated U.S. female gymnast in history. Still hungry to compete, Chellsie is vying for a place on the 2012 Olympic Team and continues to train hard to make that a reality.
“This calendar allows us to spread Chellsie’s mission of helping support the sport of gymnastics and inspire young gymnasts in everyday life,” said Brent Klaus, CEO of IGMG. “Each month offers stunning pictures of Chellsie now and from her youth, motivational words, snack suggestions and training tips to help promote a healthy lifestyle.”
“We’re extremely proud to be a part of this calendar,” said Kathe Jones Gymnastics Manager for Motionwear. “Chellsie has been such a great ambassador for our country and the sport of gymnastics, that we jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it and help support her mission of inspiration.”
The calendar will be available for purchase at bookstores and gym clubs nationwide.
