12X Olympic Medalist Ryan Lochte signs with TYR Sport

This week it was announced that TYR Sport signed 12X Olympic Medalist Ryan Lochte to its roster of sponsored athletes.

As a truly iconic figure in the world of sports, Ryan has earned his status as one of
history’s most recognizable names in swimming. With showstopping appearances in the last
four Olympic Games, he remains the World Record holder in the 200 individual medley. In
addition, his seven individual Olympic medals are second all-time in the sport of men’s
swimming. Ryan has been named both American and World Swimmer of the Year twice in his
career (2010 & 2011) and has a total of 70 medals in major international competitions
including 45 first place finishes.

Ryan’s debut will be featured in TYR’s marketing campaign “Just Let Me Work,” and will
provide fans with a glimpse into what motivates the decorated athlete moving forward.

In addition to his success in the pool, Ryan is incredibly focused on charity. He is the
spokesperson for Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (Duchenne), an illness that has
personally impacted his family, as well as the Mac Crutchfield Foundation, an
organization dedicated to raising money for drowning awareness.

“I am thrilled that I will be continuing my swimming career with TYR Sport,” began Ryan.
“I still have so much more I want to accomplish and TYR offers the perfect platform to
achieve those goals. I’ve always been very impressed with the quality of their gear and
feel fortunate to be part of their family. I look forward to the next chapter.”

“TYR is incredibly excited to welcome Ryan Lochte to our family,” said Matt DiLorenzo,
Chief Executive Officer of TYR Sport. “Through his work in the pool he has elevated the
sport of swimming on a global scale. However, it is his humble and caring approach toward
his fans that has proven truly commendable. As a company we stand behind Ryan, and look
forward to seeing what he can achieve.”
