French Olympic swimmers debut TYR Olympic swimsuit

La Fédération Française de Natation used a Paris pool deck as a fashion runway and previewed the official 2008 French National Team's Olympic competition swimsuit. Designed and manufactured by TYR Sport, the technical swimsuit TYR Tracer Rise dramatically presents the French national team colors and flag.

"These are the most technically advanced suits ever worn by a French national team. TYR's combination of high performance technology and bold design means French swimmers will have the fastest swimsuit in the pool,” said former French Swimming Olympian, Franck Horter.

European Record Holder Amaury Leveaux, the second fastest man in swimming history, and his teammates wore the patriotic Tracer Rise for the first time at the Open de Natation swim competition this week.

At the recent French Olympic Trials, Leveaux wore Tracer Rise. In back-to-back events he established a historic racing milestone by swimming the 50m Freestyle sprint in under 22 seconds and shortly thereafter won the grueling the middle-distance 200m Freestyle in under 1:47.

“I know I have the best swimsuit. I am really confident when I put on Tracer Rise before my race. No one will mistake French swimmers in the Beijing pool,” said Leveaux.

Tracer Rise is the first polyurethane hybrid design used in competition. Swimmers wearing the suits have set national, European and world records and have demonstrated up to a 4% performance improvement.

“French swim fashion just got faster,” Horter added.
