It must be nice being 17 and signing with adidas. Australian sprinter Kyle Chalmers, from Marion Swim Club in Adelaide, has been on the rise since age 15 and now he’s signed big. He’s been the star at more than a few national competitions and then quickly gained status on an international platform, appearing at both the Junior and Senior World Championships this past Summer.

I am very excited to join the Adidas family, I have always been a big fan of the brand and I look forward to a longstanding partnership” – Kyle Chalmers

The 2015 FINA World Junior Swimming Championships in Singapore served Chalmers with 3 gold medals, two individual ones in the 50m and 100m freestyle events and one for the 400m freestyle team relay. Later in Kazan, Chalmers helped Australia earn a silver medal in the 400m medley with the 2nd-fastest anchor split in the prelims field. More amazing performances are sure to come from this partnership.

“We are very pleased to have Kyle join the Adidas Swim family. His love of the sport and outstanding performances at the World Junior Championships in August highlight his commitment and talent. We look forward to accompanying him throughout his career, in and out of the pool”. -Jim Latham, Adidas Senior Director Sports Marketing
