Hey, Swim Fans!
If you love the water just as much as the next summer camper, then this blog post is for you! Read on to learn all about one of the most recognized brands on the planet! Kicking for the last 85 years and now sold in more than 170 countries, Speedo has become the world’s top-selling brand for girls swim suits and general swim wear.
They use advanced materials and designs that they’ve developed themselves to allow their customers the freedom and speed that they need. It doesn’t matter if you’re just learning to swim or training for the Olympics, Speedo can help you.
All Speedo swimwear absolutely brims with purpose. They all look the way they do from every detail right down to each color used. It all has a purpose that goes along with the functionality of the piece. It all started way back in 1928 with the Racerback suit. It was the first non-wool suit the world had seen. It allowed greater freedom of motion.
In the 50’s, Speedo came out with the first water short and the 70’s brought the first swimwear made of nylon/elastane. In 1994, Speedo introduced Endurance, the first chlorine resistant fabric. In 2000 they made the LZR Racer®, worn by Michael Phelps.
Speedo’s continuous achievements in product development and advancements in technology have kept them at the top of swimwear for competitive swimming. Did you know that there have been more Olympic Gold Medals that were won while wearing Speedo over any other brand?
Speedo has been closely tied to the Olympics since as far back as 1932 when the Australian Claire Dennis won the gold while wearing Speedo in Los Angeles. A lot has changed since way back then, but only for the better. Speedo is still just as involved in the Olympics! In 2008, Michael Phelps showed the world the greatest swimming performance ever seen and made history.
Skill obviously had a lot to do with it. But Speedo certainly plays a part as well. Enjoy your swimming.
