In the 2000 Sydney Olympics, 3 of the 5 swimming world record breakers were wearing Speedo swimwear and the brand has become synonymous with Australian swimsuit excellence. Founded over 100 years ago in Sydney, Speedo swimwear, endurance wear, bikinis and boardshorts are characterised by innovative design and high tech materials. Speedo men's swimwear and Speedo women's swimwear is popular for more than just world records, with fast drying Speedo swimwear fabric a major plus.
WHY CHOOSE SPEEDO SWIMWEAR?
The Speedo brand began in 1928 in iconic Bondi, where locals have a natural affinity with the ocean. The special one piece swimsuit has evolved to become modern Speedo men's, Speedo women's and Speedo kid's swimwear. Australian swimwear available at Anaconda includes high quality Speedo endurance swimwear, aquashorts, Fastskin shorts, Jammer shorts, Leaderback one piece swimsuits, bikinis and wetsuits.
From the outset, Speedo has created figure hugging swimwear that permitted freedom of movement and faster swimming. World records have been set in Speedo swimwear since 1929, with style and performance at the forefront of design and innovation. By the 1930s, Speedo had formed strong links with the Australian Surf Life Saving Association, a partnership that endures to this day.
The Australian swimming team at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games proudly wore Speedos to an amazing haul of 8 gold medals. By the 1960s, Speedo had began expanding to international markets with interest in special Speedo swimwear that pioneered nylon/elastane materials. This material remains the most popular form-fitting swimwear material today, worn by almost every beach and water lover worldwide.
WHAT SWIMWEAR SHOULD I CONSIDER?

Speedo swimwear is chlorine resistant and garments are made using elastane and other special swimwear fabrics.
