The Speedo LZR RACER swimsuit also played a part in making history at the Olympics. American swimming sensation Phelps won a total of eight gold medals competing in the Speedo LZR RACER suit, helping him to overtake Mark Spitz’s 36-year old record for the number of gold medals won by an athlete in the games, which makes him the greatest Olympian of all time.
Synonymous with swimwear, the iconic brand celebrates 80 years of dominance creating revolutionary new technologies, designs and innovations. In the 1920s, Speedo made history with the Racerback: the world’s first non-wool suit. In 2008 Speedo redefines swimwear again with the LZR RACER® — the fastest and most technologically advanced swimsuit ever created; meanwhile designer collaborations with Comme des Garçons put Speedo at the cutting edge of fashion design. As the world’s leading swimwear brand, Speedo is passionate about life in and around the water, supporting swimming from beginners through to elite level, including the phenomenal Michael Phelps. Speedo is owned by Pentland Brands and distributed in over 170 countries around the world. For more information, visit www.speedo.com.
SPEEDO, the ARROW device, LZR PULSE and LZR RACER are registered trade marks of Speedo Holdings B.V. The LZR RACER suit has worldwide design rights and patents pending.
