Laurie Hernandez is drawing on the power of superheroes as she makes a momentous return to competitive gymnastics. On Feb. 27, the 20-year-old athlete participated in her first meet after a nearly five-year hiatus. Such a highly anticipated occasion called for an equally incredible outfit, and Hernandez went above and beyond with her Captain Marvel-inspired leotard.
The GK Elite activewear features the signature red, yellow, and blue colors of Captain Marvel’s famous suit, replicating the hero’s electric energy. According to Hernandez’s Instagram, this is just the start of her themed looks this year. “I told some of y’all that my leos i designed for this year are all inspired by superheroes… here’s the first one!” she wrote, tagging Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson. Hernandez continues to keep fans on their toes as she teased a possible Scarlett Witch leotard in line with the WandaVision hype. We’ll just have to wait and see what she brings out next!
