Speedo India Joins Hands With Nisha Millet Swimming Academy
Speedo, the world’s leading swimwear brand, today announced its association with one of India’s leading swim academies; Nisha Millet Swimming Academy (NMSA).
With an aim to nurture the swimming ecosystem in India, this unique partnership will provide abundant opportunities to help grow and develop young talent. Speedo India and Nisha Millet Swimming Academy will both collaborate closely to grow the popularity of the sport and to help produce world class swimming champions.
Speedo and NMSA further introduced the Speedo-NMSA scholarship where they will together support a select group of talented swimmers with Exclusive Racing Kits. The Racing Kits will include the Fastskin LZR RACER suits (which usually retail at Rs. 25,000 to 30,000) and undoubtedly the fastest and most technologically advanced swimsuit ever created in the world, only available from Speedo.
Speedo will also fully equip all the coaches of NMSA and the competitive swim team known as the NMSA Marlins.
Talking about the association, Shamir Genomal, Chief Strategy Officer at Speedo India, commented, “We are delighted to announce our partnership with the Nisha Millet Swimming Academy. We together see immense potential in growing the sport and the swim category in India. With this association, we are confident of growing and developing top talent which can represent India in the upcoming International Competitions”
Unlike most academies, NMSA train their swimmers starting from age 1 until the competitive level. They offer classes to toddlers, beginners, intermediate and competitive swimming. Additionally, they even have classes for Masters, Triathlon and Aqua Pilates. NMSA wishes to encourage water as a form of fitness.
Nisha Millet said, “Speedo in all ways embodies the spirit of swimming, the passion and drive to achieve larger goals. These brand values are in sync with what our academy would like to promote. We look forward to the continued growth of the swimming movement in India."
The partnership will prove to be a huge step forward for the sport of swimming, which needs some much deserved attention.
