Seal Beach, California- January 23, 2015 – The wait is over. This past weekend at the Pro Swim Series in Austin, TX, TYR Sport debuted the industry’s most talked about product, the TYR Avictor. With a revolutionary, bold print and unprecedented combination of advanced features, the Avictor’s presence, both on deck and in the pool, turned serious heads.
Born out of a collaboration between the industry’s top experts and the world’s most elite swimmers, the Avictor showcases state-of-the-art advancement at every level. With cutting-edge hydrosphere technology, proprietary speed dry fabrication and super flex bonding, the FINA-approved suit maximizes performance, while giving athletes the ultimate advantage over their competition.

Grevers also placed 2nd in the 200m back, while World Championship Silver Medalist Michael McBroom placed 3rd in the men’s 400m free.
