Seal Beach, CA — December 10, 2015 —TYR Sport, the leading manufacturer of competitive swim and triathlon gear, is proud to welcome World Championship Gold Medalist Cody Miller to its roster of sponsored athletes.
Cody began swimming at the age of eight after being diagnosed with a medical condition known as Pectus Excavatum. As a child he set national age group records while swimming for the Sandpipers of Nevada swim club, before eventually making his way to Indiana University. Today, Cody is a world-class breaststroke specialist and has swam in some of the sport’s most competitive international races. Most notably, he contributed to Team USA’s gold medal winning effort in the 400m medley relay at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan.
Cody earned a spot in his first World Championships with an impressive win in the 100m breaststroke at the 2014 Phillips 66 Nationals. This performance also helped him to clinch a place on the 2014 Pan Pacs roster. He then went on to earn two relay medals at the 2014 FINA Short Course World Championships in Doha, Qatar. Cody is preparing to race in his third Olympic Trials and is eager to represent his country in Brazil.
“I’m incredibly excited and honored to be a part of such a stellar team,” stated Miller about his recent signing.
Sharing in his excitement, Ron Aitken, head coach of the Sandpipers included, “”The Sandpipers of Nevada are so proud to be a part of Cody’s foundation as both a person and an athlete. We are all so happy he is now a member of the TYR family!”
Matt DiLorenzo, Chief Executive Officer of TYR Sport also added, “Team TYR is truly thrilled to sponsor and support Cody Miller. He is a swimmer that exudes talent and potential. We can’t wait to see where his career takes him.”
