Gymnastics South Africa has unveiled a new and ground-breaking partnership with Quatro Gymnastics, an “innovative Gymnastics leotard company, striving to provide gymnasts with beautiful gymnastics leotards to wear to training and competitions.” 

“The partnership comes at an opportune time as our Women’s Artistic gymnasts (WAG) continue to do well on the international stage.

Gymnastics SA President, Donny Jurgens

The four-year deal will see the leading gymnastics clothing brand be the official kit partner for the junior and senior Women’s Artistic Gymnastics teams. 

“It’s an honour to collaborate with such an inspiring team, as we collectively pave the way for a brighter future in gymnastics, fostering talent and spreading the joy of athleticism throughout South Africa.”

Quatro Gymnastics CEO, Joanna Vazquez.

“During our partnership with the Gymnastics Federation of South Africa, we’ve witnessed the exhilarating growth and development of the sport across the nation,” she added.

Jurgens believes the new road they will travel with Quatro is in line with the efforts and strides made by the athletes. This move will ensure the teams are well kitted as they gear up for more competitions on the global stage. An alliance marking a remarkable step forward for the country’s gymnastics fraternity.

“In 2023 our WAG team secured gold at the African Championships in Tshwane and represented the continent at the World Championships in Belgium the same year. Caitlin Rooskrantz qualified for her second Olympic Games, which is set to take place in Paris in July. Our WAG will again be in action in the upcoming African Artistic Championships in Morocco in May. 

“We want to thank Quatro for recognizing South Africa’s Artistic Gymnastics talent and partnering with us as we continue to invest in growing gymnastics in South Africa.”

Many will argue that this partnership is long-awaited because Quatro has been of aid to the Gymnastics SA WAG team over the past two years. In 2023 Quatro designed and provided the official WAG outfit for international competitions.

Solidifying and officialising this partnership will bode well for the ever growing code in South Africa. Vazquez elaborates, “Artistic gymnastics is on the rise in South Africa, and we believe we can play our part in supporting the growth in Artistic Gymnastics. We look forward to the next four years of working with Gymnastics South Africa to ensure their WAG and MAG teams look their best and make the country proud, regardless of where they compete.” 

The WAG senior teams will compete in the 18th African Artistic Championships, scheduled for Marrakech, Morocco between 3 and 6 May. The event is an Olympic qualifying event.
