Portland, Ore. - 15 Dec 2014 – On the heels of its most successful championships in company history, Arena is proud to announce the signing of 2012 gold medalist Breeja Larson. An American record-holder and World Championship gold medalist, Larson is the latest to join Arena North America's growing roster of elite talent.
"I am thrilled to be a part of Team Arena, and to have the support of this incredible company as I train toward 2016," said Larson. "Having seen the way the company innovates, markets its athletes and supports the U.S. National Team, it was an easy choice for me. I'm thrilled to be going into this key training time knowing I have the absolute best in swimsuit technology, and that I'm with a company that believes in helping me achieve my goals."
Larson most recently won bronze in the 100m breaststroke at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships. She was part of the gold medal-winning 4x100m medley relay at the 2013 FINA World Championships and set her American record at the NCAA Championships in 2014. Larson still holds the American record in the 100y breaststroke.
"An athlete like Breeja brings so much more than success in the pool," said Arena North America General Manager Tim McCool. "She's an incredible woman with a passion for inspiring young athletes and a remarkable commitment to her craft. In keeping with our vision, Arena North America seeks out athletes who are remarkable both in the pool and out, and given that criteria Breeja was an obvious choice."
