READING, Pa. (AP) Swarovski crystals may not be included, but Olympic hopefuls can dress like the gold-medal-winning American women's gymnasts in replicas of their much-talked-about leotards.

The New York Times reports each twinkling, bedazzled leotard features nearly 5,000 Swarovski crystals and would cost $1,200 in the open retail market.

Pennsylvania's GK Elite Sportswear made the sparkly leotards and is now offering replicas for about $60 to $80 on its website. Each one is emblazoned with ''USA'' and includes a matching scrunchie.

In addition to dressing the Americans, GK Elite also makes patriotic uniforms for gymnasts from Russia, the Netherlands and New Zealand.
