December 12 - Speedo has today been named as a premier partner of Duel in the Pool as part of a deal that starts with this year's edition, taking place at Glasgow's Tollcross International Swimming Centre next weekend.
The three-year sponsorship agreement for the event, which sees the United States and the European Allstars - featuring some of the world's top swimmers - battle it out for the title, will also cover the 2015 edition in the US.
The Glasgow event, due to take place on December 20 and 21, will be the highest profile international swimming event to take place at the Tollcross Swimming Centre ahead of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and features a field including multiple world and Olympics champions.
It will also include a number of Speedo sponsored stars, such as America's Tyler Clary, Cullen Jones, Jessica Hardy and Conor Dwyer, as well as Briton Michael Jamieson, Spain's Melanie Costa, Femke Heemskerk of the Netherlands and Ukrainian Daryna Zevina, who will be racing in the brand's Fastskin LZR Racer Elite 2 swimsuit.
"Speedo is delighted to be a premier partner of Duel in the Pool which gives swimming fans the chance to see some of the world's best swimmers go head to head in this exciting and entertaining battle," Sean Hastings, Speedo's vice-president of product and marketing, said.
