About Speedo

 

Founded in Bondi, Australia in 1928, Speedo was born to make waves.

 

Within a year we set our first world record in the world's first non-woollen suit… and so our winning streak began.

 

Speedo were the first to bare arms… and ankles, and knees. Placing performance above modesty, our designers stripped away inches of cloth in pursuit of speed and defied convention. In 1932, aged just 16, Clare Dennis won Olympic Gold at the Los Angeles Games only to have her medal challenged for ‘indecency’ after showing too much shoulder-blade in her Speedo Racerback suit. She kept her medal, and Speedo kept pushing forwards.

 

In 2008, fuelled by eighty years of innovation, Speedo swept the board at the Beijing Olympics winning 89% of all medals. FINA and the IOC soon stepped in to ban our technology, and level the playing field. Speedo continue to dominate.

 

In 2020 Speedo International bought Speedo North America from PVH, uniting two separate entities and paving the way for a truly global brand.

 

Today, Speedo is the world’s #1 swimwear brand, worth c. $1.3bn at retail and sold in over 170 markets – we are never content to sit on our hands. Our focus on creating the fastest and best swimwear in the world remains, but we are also setting our sights on new frontiers – becoming the world’s most sustainable swimwear brand whilst ensuring that every body feels at home in the water.

We’re looking for the world’s best talent to join lead our team and take our brand to the next level.
