Seal Beach, CA — January 9, 2015 — TYR Sport is proud to announce the re-signing of 5x World Championship medalist Josh Schneider to its roster.
Schneider had an impressive showing at the FINA Short Course World Championship this December where he was the highest American finisher in the men’s 50m freestyle with a time of 21.20. Schneider’s top-five finish was one of many accolades secured at Short Course World Championships; he also earned a bronze medal in the 4 x 50m medley relay and a silver in the 4 x 50m freestyle relay.
After helping set two American records with team times of 1:33:25 in the 200m medley relay and 1:22:55 in the prelims of the 200m freestyle relay, Schneider was determined to end the week strong. Capping off the competition with another incredible swim, Schneider helped set a world record in the 4x50m mixed freestyle relay, leading off the gold medal winning performance for Team USA.
Josh is currently an assistant coach for the University of Cincinnati Swimming & Diving team and is also a member of the TYR sponsored New York Athletic Club swim team.
TYR is thrilled to continue supporting Josh Schneider as he looks ahead to the 2016 Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska.
