Moreover, Kim tweeted about how she inspired by the dedication of the Olympians. She is honored to have her brand partner the Olympians in their journey to make the USA proud.

“Ever since I was 10 years old, I’ve heard every single detail about the Olympics from my stepdad. As I would watch the athletes compete, I would grow to understand the dedication and honor being a part of the Olympics embodied.

“When I received the call inviting Skims to be a part of @TeamUSA, every moment I’ve spent admiring the strength and energy of the Olympians from the sidelines came full circle,” Kim tweeted.

The Tokyo-bound athletes have stamped their authority in the recently concluded trials in gymnastics and track & field. The gymnastic team has in particular been spectacular.

Despite a relatively young team, they are being led by Simone Biles, who is widely regarded as the best gymnast in recent history. They are in prime form to defend their many gold medals from the 2016 Rio Olympics and add a few more as well.
