American swimmer, Josh Prenot – one of the hottest young swim talents in the world – has today joined the impressive roster of adidas athletes. Prenot will now be equipped with the very latest innovative adidas swimwear technology as he continues his journey to becoming one of the best swimmers in the world.
At only 23, Prenot has already made his mark in the swimming pool. He starred in the 2016 Men’s NCAA Swimming Championships, winning gold in the 400M medley and breaking the pool record in the 200M breaststroke. At the U.S. Olympic trials, Prenot qualified for Rio in style, breaking the U.S. Open and American record with his time of 2:07:17; the second fastest of all time. That momentum continued to Rio, where Prenot brought home a silver medal.
Josh Prenot said of the announcement: “I am really excited to join adidas and take its innovative product to the pool to see how it helps me improve. adidas has an incredible record of helping athletes across many sports reach the pinnacle of their sport. I can’t wait to see how fast I can go with the innovative technologies of adidas behind me.”
Prenot will wear the adidas adizero XVI Breaststroke Jammer Tech Suit, adidas’ fastest ever swimsuit that combines intelligent materials and intuitive fit. In an industry first, the suit has a design customised to match the unique movements of each swimming stroke. adidas worked with biomechanics, physiologists, fabric and pattern experts, plus a global pool of elite athletes to create the game-changing swimsuit; enabling swimmers to achieve their maximum speed. The ground-breaking technology features three advancements; energy optimisation (X-TRA ENERGY), intelligent materials (X-TRA FLOW) and a stroke-specific biometric fit (X-TRA FIT).
As well as the industry-defining suit, Prenot will also wear the adidas Silicone 3D Dome Cap and adidas Persistar Mirrored Goggle. Both products compliment the adizero XVI Breaststroke Jammer Tech Suit by providing an ultimate and comfortable fit as well as hydrodynamic design.
