Commonwealth Games Australia and Speedo today reveal the uniforms for the Australian swimmers and divers at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, continuing a partnership that began at the Cardiff 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games.

 

Speedo has unveiled the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Australian team uniforms for the aquatic sports at the Gold Coast Miami Aquatic Centre, where superstar athletes stood “Bold in Gold” wearing the latest green and gold race suits and training swimwear.

Recent world record breaking swimmers Ariarne Titmus OAM and Zac Stubblety-Cook OAM were joined by Queen of the pool and eight-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist Emma McKeon AM and a host of world class athletes from across aquatic sports disciplines who will all be using and wearing Speedo to train and compete in at the Games.

Commonwealth Games Australia CEO Craig Phillips AM said our best swimmers and divers have been wearing Speedo when representing Australia at the Games for over 75 years and knows the Team Members will be wearing Speedo again proudly in Birmingham.

“Speedo has been a long-time supplier and partner of Australian Commonwealth Games Teams and athletes because they are trusted and give the athletes the best swimwear there is,” Phillips said.

“We’ve no doubt the athletes will be bold in Birmingham and will perform with pride in their green and gold Speedo swimmers.”

The pool competition wear features Speedo’s latest tech race suits in Aussie Green and Gold; Fastskin Pure Intent and Fastskin Pure Valor designed to combine 20 years of pioneering performance with innovative technologies and fabrics to make the perfect suit for every type of competitive swimmer.

In these Speedo suits, there have been many bold athletes winning gold, and there will be many more in Birmingham.

 

 

“After the excitement and incredible performances of our athletes last year and even more recently, we are really looking forward to seeing them compete again in a few weeks in Birmingham,” Graham Eyres, Speedo brand manager said.

“We’re proud to support them with the best green and gold swimwear and hope they inspire lots of Aussies to jump in to their own Speedos and go for a swim.”

The green and gold diving competition and swim training suits feature the Commonwealth Games ‘Unity’ symbol, which was designed by Indigenous artist Jenna Lee, as part of a series of works created by Brisbane-based agency Gilimbaa, for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Reconciliation Action Plan.

The ‘Unity’ symbol was used on elements of the formal uniforms for the Australian Team on the Gold Coast and has been incorporated into the swimwear for Birmingham 2022 so the athletes feel proud to be representing Australia.

The range also features Speedo latest Eco Endurance+ fabric made from recycled plastics and is 100% chlorine resistant.

Although not able to be present due to their own trials taking place in Melbourne, diving stars Sam Fricker and Nikita Hains received a special delivery and were all able to try the diving competition suits to put them to the test.

Commonwealth Games hopefuls Sam Fricker and Nikita Hains model the Speedo diving uniform ahead of the Diving Australia trials this weekend.

 

For over 80 years Speedo have been the choice of swimwear for Australia’s best swimmers and divers and it will be again as they go for gold at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Commonwealth Games Australia and Speedo continue a partnership that began at the Cardiff 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games.
