Sarah Sjöström became Sweden's first ever female Olympic swimming gold medallist when she won the 100m butterfly at Rio 2016, setting a new world record of 55.48 in the process.
It is one of four long course world records currently held by Sjöström. She also has the world's fastest times in 50m butterfly (24.43), 50m freestyle (23.67) and 100m freestyle (51.71).
Sjöström has been a dominant force on the international scene for the past decade. She won her first European gold medal in the 100m butterfly at the age of just 14 in 2008, and has claimed golds at every European Championship held since then. At Glasgow 2018, she won four gold medals in the 50m and 100m freestyle, along with the 50m and 100m butterfly.
What swimsuit does Sarah Sjöström wear for racing? As part of her sponsorship with Arena, Sarah Sjöström has played a key role in developing the Arena Powerskin Carbon Ultra tech suit. She has been known to wear this swimsuit for many high profile races, along with the Arena Cobra Ultra or Core racing goggles.
"Being able to wear the world’s best gear, and also be involved on the cutting edge during its development, is obviously a big advantage."
