Hackett and Speedo partner for road to Rio

16 July 2015

SWIMMING: Speedo Australia has today announced the re-signing of Australian swimming legend Grant Hackett as their newest ambassador.

This is a long standing relationship, with Speedo having sponsored Hackett throughout his swimming career. Grant’s sponsorship started with the brand in 1999, 16 years ago.

The brand has seen the star win all seven of his Olympic medals in iconic Speedo swimsuits, and is proud to be supporting Hackett on his journey to the Kazan World Championships & Rio Olympics in 2016.

“We’re thrilled to have Grant re-join Team Speedo and renew our relationship with one of Australia’s true swimming legends” said Graham Eyres, Speedo Pacific Brand Manager. “Speedo is about inspiring people to swim and this partnership is about connecting our brand with those that share our passion for water. We believe Grant is the perfect ambassador to recruit people back to the pool and we’re excited to see what he can achieve over the coming years”.

Hackett leaves with the Australian Dolphins Swim Team for Doha on Saturday night to prepare for the up-coming Fina World Championships, his first since 2007.
