Seal Beach, CA-November 10, 2015- TYR Sport is proud to announce the recent signing of the University of Cincinnati to its roster of sponsored teams.
Since their first Olympian in 1912, the Bearcats have represented the University of Cincinnati on some of the largest stages of competition. With 120 All-Americans, 5 NCAA Champions and 11 Olympians to their name, it’s hard to argue with the numbers. Home to World Championship Gold Medalist and Team TYR athlete Josh Schneider, who has been assistant coach for his alma mater since 2014, UC is no stranger to success. Currently under the direction of Cincinnati native, Mandy Commons-DiSalle, both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams continue to redefine what it means to perform.
“The UC program is extremely excited to partner with TYR, especially after seeing the success so many athletes have found while competing in the Avictor,” began Mandy Commons-DiSalle. “It is so impressive to work with a brand that is truly athlete-focused, and we look forward to having TYR help us find continued success as our team grows.”
“The University of Cincinnati provides collegiate level athletes with an incredible environment to both learn and thrive. As a brand we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with an up and coming program led by such a dynamic coaching staff. We look forward to supporting their success,” said Steve Furniss, Team Management Director of TYR Sport.
Named for TYR, the Norse god of warriors, our company is committed to cultivating a culture of greatness, both in and out of the water. Through vision, pursuit and American ingenuity, we have become a brand synonymous with the athlete.
Like all athletes we work with an intense spirit of competition, but unlike the others, we refuse to stop there. From the planning stages to the production floor, everything we do revolves around synthesizing creativity, experience and sheer willpower. For us, engineering the fastest, most advanced performance products is more than just a goal, it’s a requirement.
At TYR, we’re always in front.
