TYR FINA Approved Swimsuits

TYR FINA Approved Swimsuits

Here is the statement from TYR, regarding their FINA Approved Swimsuits:

On Tuesday, the international governing body of our sport, FINA, released their “FINA 2009 List of Approved Swimsuits.” The suits on this list are approved through December 31, 2009.

TYR has three of our technologies listed as approved:

1. Tracer Rise
2. Tracer Light
3. Untitled technology

These technologies are not listed by name on FINA’s list, but rather as corresponding codes to the samples that were submitted.

The codes correlate as follows:

1. A10 refers to Tracer Rise
2. A12 refers to Tracer Light
3. A7 refers to untitled technology

We are currently working with FINA to have these model names clarified and reflected on their official list.

In the meantime, we are pleased to have Tracer Rise and Tracer Light approved for use during the many events that will comprise the upcoming season. This will include the National Championships (World Championship Trials) in Indianapolis and the World Swimming Championships in Rome.

Blue Seventy Avaliable Soon

Blue Seventy Avaliable Soon

The most popular swimsuit of the short course championship season is almost completely sold out. The new Blue Seventy Nero swimsuit has been sold at a phenomenal rate this month and only a few odd sizes remain on the shelves of a few swim shops. The performance of the Blue Seventy Nero Swimskin racing suit has helped propel it to the top right along side of the Speedo LZR Racer and the TYR Tracer Rise. The Speedo LZR Racer has been selling out and delivery is taking longer for Speedo USA since there is only one factory supplying the whole world with the LZR. The lower price of the Nero Swimskin and delivery problems with Speedo have certainly helped Blue Seventy sell more suits this season. Blue Seventy is expecting to start shipping more Nero swimsuits at the end of the month so swim shops like D&J Sports will have BlueSeventy suits in stock during the first week of March. Just in time for the last couple rounds of championship swim meets.
