Wow Speedo is really ramping up their roster. I wonder if they were going to have a big signing last last or of this was the plan for 2024. Either way they’re able to sign a lot of talent which wasn’t available.

I have a feeling we are in for some neat suits and gear. Tech, training, and casual. It is Paris after all.

Definitely feeling pressure from TYR. TYR have most of the “studs” at the moment. They probably are more invested and paying bigger. Bucks for the bigger names in the USA!
Side bar, are the suits any different?

Personally I love tyr suits. As a breastroker I never found the Lzr X to be any good. Went from my main suit as the Avictor to the Venzo. Have tried many other brands such as Arena, Speedo, Asics and never found something even close.

TYR is definitely claiming a lot of swimmers on the women’s side but speedo has most of the male stars so it works out relatively evenly, at least in the US I’m not sure about international swimmers but they seem to use Arena suits a lot more
