INDIANAPOLIS - USA Synchro today announced a
sponsorship with Triflare, a St. Louis-based triathlon/athletic
apparel company that will provide swimsuits for the U.S. national
"USA Synchro is
excited about the establishment of the sponsorship with Triflare,"
said Kevin Warner, USA Synchro's Chief Operating
Officer and Transition Director. "We feel that the uniqueness of
the Triflare competitive synchronized swimming suits will be a
significant step to our team's success in the future. The
possibilities that we now possess make this an extremely valuable
endeavor. We are happy to have Triflare part of our team."
Robertson, Founder and CEO of Triflare, initially
conceived of the brand and product after being tired of the
performance suits that were available to women. Robertson raced on
the triathlon race circuit for 15 years and grew tired of the
limited selection of (usually black) suits.
Mclean (Triflare creative director/lead designer) and I
have a very systematic approach to our designs. We love to make
statement pieces for women that excite women who are getting ready
to race and train. Looking strong and bold can increase passion for
the sport," Robertson said.
The contract with
the USA Synchronized Swimming team was finalized in early February.
Triflare will be producing the suits for the team through 2017.
USA Synchro was established as a
nonprofit organization in 1977, and is the United States national
governing body for the sport, recognized by the International
Olympic Committee, the United States Olympic Committee and FINA
(Federation Internationale de Natation Amateur) - the international

Age Group (12-19), Junior (15-18), Senior and Masters (20+).
Triflare is a triathlon sportswear brand designed with every level
of competitor in mind. Each piece of clothing in the Triflare
collection was designed with two thoughts in mind: femininity and
power. Designed with the help of a successful and established
fashion designer, each piece is flattering on a woman's body and
shows those muscled curves that have come from hours of training.
These trisuits are not only unique, but they are designed to be
comfortable and resilient, making every move in a race efficient.
The prints embody the bold goals of a triathlete and capture the
pursuit of competition.
