BRAND STORY

Speedo
Picture underwater with speedo logo

      To some kids, archery is their favorite activity, others can’t wait to go horseback riding, but for a great number of summer campers, it’s water activities that are considered most essential to summer camp! After all, camp allows kids opportunities that don’t come around every day back home—opportunities like waterskiing, canoeing, snorkeling, sailing, and more! With fun in the water being such an attractive part about summer camp, we were compelled to give our shoppers a closer look at the Speedo brand which dominates the majority of our swimwear and other swim accessories.

      Interested to know more about this well-established company that dates back to 1928, we contacted Speedo to get some information about their company history and got word back from their Account Executive, Mike. Mike told us how he came to join the Speedo team and gave me some information about the different strokes Speedo’s had throughout the decades.

Competitive swimming was not-at-all popular back then, but that was all about to change...

      But first, let’s learn a little about Mike himself. Once an apparel buyer, he wanted to give something else a shot and put out an ad for himself in the newspaper as an independent sales representative. That was back in 1977. And that’s exactly when the folks at Speedo found him and brought him on board. Working nothing but wonders for the business, neither Mike nor Speedo has looked back.

      Mike may not be able to give us a personal account for all of Speedo’s history, but he’s been with the company for nearly half of its existence and he was able to give us a great understanding for how things used to be when they first started and how they got to be the way they are now.

      The Speedo story starts in 1910 when a young man named Alexander MacRae left his home in Scotland and moved to Australia where he started a business called ‘MacRae Hosiery Manufacturers’. This would indeed lead to the Speedo brand, but it wouldn’t go by that name until 1928 when MacRae popularized his revolutionary release of the Racerback—the first non-wool swimsuit. Competitive swimming was not-at-all popular back then, but that was all about to change.

      The Racerback boasted unprecedented tightness and featured open shoulders along with an exposed back. It may seem uncontroversial today, but it was actually so far ahead of its time that it was banned on beaches back then. But that didn’t stop MacRae’s new design from reaching great popularity and before long one of the staff members, a Captain Parsons, coined the term ‘Speedos’ in his catchy slogan, ‘Speed on in your Speedos’. And so the name was born.

      Speedo has continued to introduce a number of new creations over the years like the first swim shorts, the bikini, the first nylon swimwear, and more! Their most recent design is the LZR Racer which is the most technically advanced swimsuit in the world. But likely their biggest claim to fame started in 1932 when Speedo made its Olympic debut at the L.A. Olympics. Throughout the competitions, Speedo has continuously proven to be the swimwear of Olympic winners. It’s clear that Speedo makes the best swimwear and swim accessories the world over!

      Whether you’re going for the gold or making your first few splashes, Speedo will give your camper the confidence and motivation to achieve their swimming aspirations and the ability to enjoy the water! Carrying Speedo products was a no-brainer for us! According to Mike, there’s really only one reason for campers to go Speedo: “They will swim like an Olympian.”
