READING, Pa. -

Two U.S. lawmakers are praising a sportswear company in Reading.

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey and U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach took a tour of GK Elite Sportswear on North 13th Street.

The company made uniforms for some Olympic athletes, including the gold medal-winning U.S. women's gymnastics team.

"It is so exciting to see these national athletes on TV in apparel made right here in Pennsylvania," said Kelly Christman, GK Elite Sportswear.

GK Elite employs about 350 people.
