TYR's Tracer New High-Performance Line

TYR's New Tracer High-Performance Line Performs for Top USA Swimmers

Huntington Beach, Calif. -- March 15, 2010 -

TYR's new Tracer High-Performance Line has proven to be a success in the water since it launched at retail February 1st, 2010. At the recent Missouri Grand Prix and Austin Grand Prix, TYR athletes wearing the new technology won 18 gold medals and broke two pool records in the process. In addition, Ariana Kukors swam the fastest time in the world this year in the 200m individual medley in 2:10.34.

Along with world record holders Kukors and Nick Thoman, Olympians Matt Grevers and Amanda Weir were among the many TYR athletes who have looked to the new Tracer High-Performance Line on race day.

"I feel great racing with the compression of the C-Series," shared Thoman, who won both the 100m and 200m backstroke events wearing the Tracer C-Series in Missouri "It provided the right support in the right places and most importantly, it felt fast!"

Thoman was among the TYR athletes in Missouri who had multiple wins. Weir took both the 50m (25.64) and 100m (56.19) freestyle to earn the title of the fastest female at the meet.

At the Austin Grand Prix, Kukors, Robert Margalis, and Michael Alexandrov all earned double wins, with Kukors breaking a University of Texas at Austin pool record in the 200m individual medley (2:10.34). Racing in the Tracer B-Series, she earned her second gold in 400m individual medley in a lifetime best of 4:37.63.

"The B-series is a great suit," shared Kukors. "It is easy to move in and comfortable to compete in. The compression feels great and the bonded seams mean less drag in the water. It forms to my body leaving no room for air bubbles."

Grevers took the 100m backstroke in Austin, clocking a 53.05 to set a new pool record. Racing in the Tracer B-Series, he swam faster than his silver medal performance at the 2008 Olympic Games.
