Seal Beach, CA — June 23, 2016 —TYR Sport, the leading manufacturer of competitive swim and triathlon gear, is proud to welcome breaststroke specialist and U.S. National Team Member Molly Hannis to its roster of sponsored swimmers.
With major performances for the University of Tennessee under her belt, Hannis has undoubtedly been one to watch. Highlighting her time as a Lady Vol with two NCAA titles, she helped the University of Tennessee to win both the 200y and 400y medley relays at the 2013 NCAA Championships.
In 2014 she was at it again, winning the 100y breast title and taking second in the 200y breast at AT&T Winter Nationals. Recently, she placed second in the 200m breast at 2015 Phillips 66 Nationals and helped her team win the national title in the 400m medley relay in the 100m breaststroke. Hannis also represented the U.S.A. at the World University Games and on the FINA World Cup circuit where she earned three World Cup victories.
Setting her sights on the world stage, this National Team member will compete in her third Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, next week.
"After racing in the Avictor at U.S.A. Summer Nationals I knew instantly that TYR Sport was for me,” said Hannis. “I am honored to have the support of the TYR brand as I begin my professional career, and I can't wait to see what's in store."
