Amanda Beard promotes Aqua Sphere, swimming gear brand

Amanda Beard, the four-time Olympic swimmer and new mom, is finding comfort in the pool with Aqua Sphere.

As the new face of the company that's recognized for its high-quality swim products that are as comfortable as they are innovative, Beard's endorsement comes from a lifetime of experience in the water as well as a new lifestyle that places comfort above competition.

"We're obviously extremely excited to have Amanda with us," says Oliver Laguette, Director of Marketing for Aqua Sphere. "Here's someone who's spent over half her life training in the pool. If anyone knows what feeling comfortable in the water is - it's her."

Beard first gained fame as a 14-year-old phenom when she won silver in the 100- and 200-meter breaststroke, and gold in the medley relay at the 1996 Olympic Games. She went on to win seven Olympic medals, eight U.S. Swimming titles, a World Championships title and a World Record in her signature event, the 200-meter breaststroke.

Today, the 28-year-old swimmer and new mother, who is currently training for the 2012 Olympic games in London, works out four to five hours a day - but her priorities have shifted slightly from swimming to her 10-month-old son, Blaise Ray Brown.

"My lifestyle has changed over the last year. Comfort has become a luxury," says Beard, whose time is split between swimming laps and changing diapers, "so I'll take it wherever I can find it, and Aqua Sphere's products are absolutely the most comfortable gear I've ever used."
