Arena signs Olympian swimmer Julia Smit

Arena Swimwear, one of the leading performance waterwear companies in the world, announced it has signed Olympian and national champion Julia Smit to wear the company's racing swimwear and athletic apparel.

Smit, 22, holds the world records in both the 200 and 400 Individual Medley (IM) and is regarded as one of the most dominant short course IM competitors in recent years. She enjoyed an illustrious collegiate career at the Stanford University where she was a 26-time All-American, six-time NCAA champion and 10-time Pac-10 champion.

“It's not often that the swim world is blessed with someone of Julia's caliber and we are very excited to see her compete in Area racing swimwear in the coming years,” said Bryan Smeltzer vice president of marketing, Arena USA. “Julia is a tremendous young talent that has a knack for dominating at every level in which she competes. We believe that the performance behind Arena's industry leading Powerskin racing suits will power her to more victories.”

Smit's international prominence began in 2008 at the Beijing Olympics where she earned two medals: a silver for the 400 freestyle relay and a bronze for the 800 freestyle relay. Following her maiden experience in the Olympics, Smit began her record-setting crusade breaking the 400m short course IM record.

She successfully defended her 400 IM title in American-record time. She also added a 200 IM championship and again established a new American record. At the 2009 National Championships, Smit punched her ticket to the World Championships by winning the 200 IM.
