Seal Beach, CA — March 15, 2019 — TYR Sport is proud to announce the re-signing of 2x Olympic medalist, 5x World championship medalist and American record holder Cody Miller to its roster of sponsored athletes.

After a breakout year in 2016, Cody Miller became the first athlete in the history of Indiana University Swimming to punch a ticket to the Olympic Games. Once in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Cody earned an individual bronze medal for his swim in the men’s 100m breaststroke, as well as a gold for his participation in the 4x100m medley relay.

Despite his standing as one of the world’s best breaststroke swimmers, Cody was then sidelined with injuries in both of his knees and forced to step away from competition. He has since worked tirelessly to heal and is now setting his sights on the future. Most recently, Miller scored third place in the men’s 100m breaststroke at the 2019 TYR Pro Swim Series in De Moines, IA.

“Cody’s talent as a breaststroke specialist is undeniable,” began TYR Sport Chief Executive Officer Matt DiLorenzo. “Over the past few years he has become one of the sport’s most visible athletes, both in and out of the water. As his sponsor, we are proud to support him on his journey toward 2020.”

Looking ahead, Cody is set to once again make waves on the world’s stage. Working in conjunction with the TYR design team, Cody played a major  role in the production of TYR Sport’s most anticipated technical suit: The TYR Venzo.

Sharing in the sentiment, Cody began, “I’m super excited to be re-signing with TYR. After having worked with the brand for over four years I can honestly say it feels like being part of a family. Luckily, it just so happens that this awesome family makes the fastest tech suits and most comfortable goggles on the market. I feel incredibly honored and lucky to continue my partnership with them!”

TYR Sport is Proud to Announce the Launch of Its Most Anticipated Technical Suit: The TYR Venzo

TYR_Venzo_BattleBorn

Laguna Beach, CA —October 3, 2018 —TYR Sport is proud to announce the launch of its most anticipated technical suit: The TYR Venzo.

Unveiled today in Laguna Beach, CA, Olympic athletes and history making champions including Katie Ledecky, Ryan Lochte, Simone Manuel and Matt Grevers hit the stage to showcase the Venzo in front of the industry’s most prominent names and tastemakers. Working in conjunction with the TYR design team, Olympic athletes played an integral role in the production of this state-of-the-art technical suit. In addition, TYR is proud to note that the Venzo is manufactured in the U.S.A of imported goods, adding to the long list of attributes that set it apart from its competitors.

As the first and only technical suit in the industry to analyze drag from a microscopic perspective, the Venzo utilizes ultra smooth fiber to thread a frictionless, durable fabric. Designed with state-of-the-art Surface Lift Technology, the suit prevents water from permeating its fabric, resulting in higher body position in the water.

In addition, a patent pending taping and inner textile design known as the suit’s Endo Compression Cage provides a shield of support for the abdominals, obliques and quadriceps. This cage not only creates a snapback effect in the water but also helps to increase distance per stroke. Working in tandem with this technology is the Venzo’s Seamless Exo Shell, a sleek construction geared toward streamlining body position.

The most important thing for us as a brand is to help athletes achieve their goals. So it’s critical for us to work with them on what they need leading into Tokyo,” began TYR Sport Chief Executive Officer Matt DiLorenzo. “This process has been all about pushing the limits in accordance with regulations and bringing that to market. Our suit is the apex, and the numbers prove it.”

Sharing in the sentiment, 6x Olympic medalist and one of TYR’s longest sponsored athletes Matt Grevers remarked, “Having been a part of the development of TYR tech suits for over 10 years, I can confidently say this is the best combination of compression and comfort. The Venzo was a collaborative effort with constant feedback from TYR athletes, and although it can be difficult to appease the preferences of every swimmer, I believe the design team listened to all of us to came up with best suit on the planet.”

Similarly, 12x Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte said, “Since I signed with TYR, I’ve been back and forth to their offices to test the Venzo at every stage of development. When it was complete, I literally felt like a superhero moving through the water. This suit will break world records, it’s that fast.”

“I have never worn a suit that makes me feel more prepared, confident, and comfortable in the water,” revealed 6x Olympic Medalist Katie Ledecky. “TYR has really taken things to the next level with the Venzo in terms of the suit’s durability, compression impact, and the smoothness and stability it provides in the water.”

The TYR Venzo will be available for pre-order in November of 2018. For more information, please visit https://www.tyr.com/shop/venzo.
