Roberto Pavoni and Fran Halsall model Team England’s Commonwealth Games kit

Arena picIn a break from the traditional bright red, Arena has unveiled a tastefully coloured back, grey and maroon swimsuit for Team England’s Commonwealth Games swimmers.

Modelled here on the shores of Loch Ness (or more likely in front of a green screen) by Arena sponsored swimmers, Fran Halsall and Roberto Pavoni, the designs, were says Arena, “the result of a very unique design process that saw Arena consult elite athletes for their input during a number of creative sessions.

“From the early stages of development through to completion, the athletes were consulted on the look and feel of the suits that they would be wearing in the pool at this summer’s event.”

From Wednesday June 2, supporters can buy replica Arena kit online through the Commonwealth Games England website. Arena is providing racing suits, training suits, goggles and caps to the England aquatics team at the Games in Glasgow from July 24.

Kukri is supplying the rest of Team England’s wear for the other sports in the Commonwealth Games. See here:
