WORLD FAMOUS SWIMMING CHAMPION MICHAEL PHELPS JOINS AQUASPHERE

Tuesday, 12 August 2014

We are pleased to inform our esteemed customers that Michael Phelps, the world famous swimming champion, who had spent his entire professional career with Speedo, has joined the Aqua Sphere Family.

Michael Phelps said that he will try to help expand the sport of swimming even more. One big news item from the Associated Press report is that the deal is expected to run through the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“Throughout my career, I’ve been able to do a lot of things with Speedo. The relationship was great,” Phelps told The Associated Press. “But we came to a point where we had an opportunity to really change the sport and grow the sport even more.”

The Aqua Sphere deal is a partnership with Phelps and his coach Bob Bowman, who will also work with Aqua Sphere to help design its first racing suit for swimming. Aqua Sphere is more well known for its experience in triathlons and recreational swimming.

“It’s really just an investment of our time,” Bowman said. “I think they have all the wherewithal and infrastructure to make it happen. It’s really exciting for us to actually be able to create some things whereas normally it’s just something where we pick out something and use it. Now, we can tailor and make some things to the way we’d like swimming to go, the things that we think are important.”
