NORCROSS, GA – (January 21, 2022) – Mizuno, the global specialty sporting goods company, first entered the collegiate and NIL conversations by signing their first collegiate swimmer, Carson Foster back in September of 2021. Mizuno now makes its second official NIL signing with talented athlete, Jake Foster.  Jake is a versatile swimmer with specific strengths in the individual medley and has been recognized as a part of the USA National Team this year.

“Adding Jake Foster to our roster is a no brainer.,” said Clint Sammons, Team Sports Director at Mizuno USA. “Not only has he continued to prove himself in the pool as a talented and hardworking athlete, he is eager to build the brand alongside his brother Carson. We are looking forward to partnering with him to support his career and officially add him to the Mizuno Family. We believe that with the two Foster brothers we can continue to advance our swim products and help athletes of all ages excel in the water and on dry land.”

Foster will wear Mizuno gear across all aspects of his training specifically the GX Sonic tech suits, exer practice suits, swim equipment, and Mizuno training gear. He will also work with Mizuno to bring insight and advice to enhance Mizuno swimming products and offerings in the future.

“When I wear Mizuno, I feel confident knowing that I am wearing a top-of-the-line brand that helps me to reach peak performance,” said Foster. “Family is very important to me, which is why I am ecstatic to represent the Mizuno brand alongside my brother Carson Foster. Carson and I have always been better together, and I believe this will be a strength to both of us as we promote the Mizuno brand.”

In addition to excelling at the collegiate level, Jake Foster has been named a member of the USA Swimming National Team. Foster is from Scottsdale, Arizona but calls Cincinnati, Ohio his hometown and swam for coach Ken Heis – longtime coach of the Mason Manta Rays.

Would be a travesty, because there are much more qualified swimmers both female and male that could use the sponsorship to help them keep swimming.

Hannah would be a wonderful addition to Mizuno like she is anywhere she goes. She has some serious brains and major talent!

In 2020-2021, SwimCloud ranked her as the 27th best swimmer in NCAA D2, and not even within the top 300 swimmers in all of the NCAA. The only reason she’d get signed is that she’s a sibling of the Foster brothers, not because she’s on track to make the Olympic team. Give it to someone who actually merits the sponsorship and needs money to continue swimming,

Congrats to the family. Hopefully Jake can break out at some point and be in contention for 2024 alongside Carson

FINALLY, athletes getting a slice of the money they truly deserve through endorsements!
I would be hard pressed to find a better male swimming duo than Jake and Carson Foster. . .

You can’t think of a single better male swimming duo than two guys who didn’t make the Olympic Team?

Try harder.
