Here at Speedo we’re excited to announce that we will once again be the sponsors of Paralympics Australia for the fourth consecutive Paralympic Games.
The Australian Paralympic Swimming Team will be kitted out with exclusive high performance competition and training gear that will give them a competitive edge at the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
“We are thrilled to extend our exclusive partnership with Paralympics Australia that will see us supply the green and gold swimmers to our national team heading to Tokyo 2020,” says Graham Eyres, Brand Manager at Speedo Australia.
He added “Speedo is passionate about life in and around the water, and our aim is to inspire people to swim. We are sure the Paralympic athletes in Tokyo will inspire all Australians to get involved in sport & swimming.”
Since their establishment in 1990, Paralympics Australia has been helping Australians with disabilities to participate in sport and compete at the Paralympic Games.
“Paralympics Australia is delighted to welcome Speedo back into the Paralympic family. Their support and commitment in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics Games is a huge boost for Para-swimmers aiming for glory against the world’s best,” said Lynne Anderson, Paralympics Australia Chief Executive.
“Speedo is an iconic leader in their field and what better way to showcase our nation's colours of green and gold than with a brand that is so well known and loved by Australians. Our team will wear being wearing their Paralympic swim gear with pride in Tokyo next year.,”
As part of the partnership, Speedo will be the sole provider of swim gear for the Australian Paralympic Swim Team.
The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games are set to mark Speedo’s fourth consecutive Games supplying high performance swimsuits to Australia’s Paralympic team.
While it’s very sad and disappointing for us to see the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics postponed we welcome the chance for all athletes to be given a fair opportunity to train properly as they prepare and work towards a new timing for the Tokyo Olympic Games. Here at Speedo will continue to work closely with athletes and the Australian Olympic Team to provide all the support they need and we can all look forward to what will still be an amazing Olympic Games next year.
Tides have changed and we know that the waters feel a little foggy right now so here's a little update for our Speedo fam.
