Speedo continues Historic Partnership with Commonwealth Games Australia.
Speedo Australia will once again support our world-beating Aussie swimmers and divers at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Commonwealth Games Australia and Speedo continue a partnership that began at the Cardiff 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games.
For over 80 years Speedo have been the choice of swimwear for Australia’s best swimmers and divers and it will be again as they go for gold next July.
Graham Eyres, Brand Manager – Speedo Pacific said “Our top Aussie athletes wore Speedo to bring back a golden haul last year and we are really excited to see the Commonwealth Games team do the same again this year”.
The agreement will see Speedo supply training and competition wear to the Australian swimming and diving teams at the Birmingham Games.
“Athletes like Emma McKeon will wear exactly the same quality of swimmers and race suits that every day Aussies have available to them, with just the all-important Australian Commonwealth Games team crest added to the unique green and gold suits designed for the Team, which we will reveal in the weeks ahead. We’re sure that the 2022 team will be bold and brilliant in Birmingham”.
Commonwealth Games Australia CEO Craig Phillips AM said our best swimmers and divers have been wearing Speedo when representing Australia at the Games for over 75 years.
“Speedo has supported the Australian team at the Commonwealth Games since the 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Cardiff, Wales,” Phillips said.
“While the styles may have changed through the years, Speedo’s commitment to design and performance remains at the forefront of sport as the world’s leading swimwear brand. We look forward to unveiling our team competition uniforms in the coming months.”
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will take place from 28 July to 8 August 2022.
