The Secret U.S. Classic Leo Panel

This Leo Panel features four judges ranking every leo worn in a competition from our most to least favorite using our very scientific and very awesome Leotard Code of Points.

We take deductions from five categories (color, fabric, design, bling, and appearance on the gymnast, in order of how you’ll see them on our scoresheets). Each category is worth two points. We add the categories together to get each judge’s individual score, drop the highest and lowest scores, and average the remaining to get the final score.

This edition of the Leo Panel looks at the leotards worn by the gymnasts during the Secret U.S. Classic. Note- as “science-y” as we pretend to be, this is all just based on opinion – i.e. our personal tastes and favorites. It is by no means a definitive list of the best and worst! What leo was your favorite?

“I love this conceptually and I think it looked great in HD. That being said, I found the buildings distracting. But for better or worse, I think this one will go down in history.”

“Took me a bit. I don’t hate it. I like that it’s the Dallas skyline but I don’t like how rigid it is at the same time. I think of their water and fire leos as the same. I just want a different bodice, I guess.”

“This leo would be so much better without the giant hair with matching sparkly ribbons.”

“THIS is the correct way to utilize mesh.”

“I’m not opposed to cutouts, but I am opposed to their placement on this particular leo.”

“On a lot of other girls, this wouldn’t have worked. But the MG Elite girls absolutely killed this look.”

“I loved it but it took me a whole day to get there. In the juniors, Riley and her bling definitely caught my eye and I didn’t notice the cutouts until I saw it on the big screen. I didn’t like them at first but at the end of the day, it looked good. The MG Elite girls worked it.”

“This design might have worked with different colors but the greenish yellow ruins it for me.”

“Another basic leo. Pretty but not a standout.”

“Nastia would be proud.”

“Somehow this leo manages to be too much and too little at the same time.”

“I like the color…#hotpinknation makes you stand out. The bling is a bit excessive, though, and I’m not sure I get the actual pattern. Is it supposed to be a heart?”

“It looks great on her but it’s not super interesting or original at all.”

“The bubble gum pink isn’t my favorite but the design is great. It reminds me of Jordyn Wieber’s 2012 nationals leo.”

“I don’t love it, but it would’ve been cute for one of the younger juniors.”

“If the body was blue I’d be all for it.”

“It seemed nice in theory but something went wrong along the way.”

    • It’s possible she had a wardrobe malfunction or something and they allowed it…in 2013 McKayla Maroney’s leo split at the seams and she was lucky that she had an extra with her, but maybe Brenna’s got lost in the mail or something happened to them and they approved a national team leo for her?

  1. I know that few will agree with me, but I find it so weird that nearly all of them have full length sleeves. I don’t like the way it looks and also can’t imagine having that on me while doing gymnastics. i like the shorter sleeves like Khorkina used to wear sometimes.

  2. I like the classic red leos from Simone and Morgan, but it’s been done so many times before. A classic leo never gets old, but I wouldn’t have put them at the top. I really like the purple one from Metroplex! And I just LOVE how original TX Dreams’ leo is! I love the colors and the design is just fantastic, lovely idea!
