At the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the newest arena Elite Team member Matt Biondi became the 2nd swimmer to win 7 medals in one Olympiad. Close to matching Spitz’s record, 5 of Biondi’s 7 medals were Gold and 4 of those were won with world record times. The first man to swim the 100m Free in under 49 seconds, Biondi can also be referred to as a 3-Time Olympian, 11-Time Olympic Medalist, 6-Time World Champion, 24-Time U.S. National Champion and World Record Holder. He is now a member of the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame and the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
At the beginning of the 90’s arena was ready to launch another technological breakthrough: AquaRacer®. AquaRacer was designed to make swimmers glide through the water because of its extra smooth finish and outstanding fit with maximum freedom of movement.
