On the heels of its most successful championships in company history, Arena is proud to announce the signing of 2012 gold medalist Breeja Larson. An American record-holder and World Championship gold medalist, 2012 USA Swimming Olympic Trials is the latest to join Arena North America’s growing roster of elite talent.

“I am thrilled to be a part of Team Arena, and to have the support of this incredible company as I train toward 2016,” said Larson. “Having seen the way the company innovates, markets its athletes and supports the U.S. National Team, it was an easy choice for me. I’m thrilled to be going into this key training time knowing I have the absolute best in swimsuit technology, and that I’m with a company that believes in helping me achieve my goals.”

Larson most recently won bronze in the 100m breaststroke at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships. She was part of the gold medal-winning 4x100m medley relay at the 2013 FINA World Championships and set her American record at the NCAA Championships in 2014.
