2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil & Funky Trunks World Cup Swim Caps


For all our swimmers out there who have a passion for football, you are going to love the new line of swim caps from Funky Trunks. Even though all of us can’t be in Brazil to see the world’s best football teams face off, we still can show support for our favourite teams when in the pool. The only downside is you may catch a hard time from fellow swim mates if your team doesn’t do so well in Brazil in just under a couple of months.

Each cap features a soccer ball design to show you have football on the brain. They also have the nation’s name and colours along with a prominent Funky Trunks logo. And as usual, Funky Trunks caps are made with 100% silicone for a snug and long-lasting fit that will last you a long time after the 2014 FIFA World Cup is over.

Rio 14

If you aren’t a football fan, but enjoy watching the world cup, the Rio 14 cap is the perfect swim cap for you. The Rio 14 swim cap shows all of the team’s flags, so you don’t really have loyalty to any single team. Although if you are looking for a team, us Aussies would appreciate your support!

Les Blues

Even though France has only won the World Cup once, I guess they are still a good team. Right? Although you may have questionable taste in football, this red, white and blue Les Blues cap will at least amp up your taste in style in the water.


Brazil is good at a lot of different things, but they are pretty much a nation of awesome soccer players. Brazil is also hosting the 2014 World Cup, so why not show your support for the host nation by wearing the Canarinho swim cap?

Three Lions

The odds are not really looking good for England in the World Cup, but if you want to wear your Three Lions swim cap loud and proud we can respect that. Besides, the red and white colors of the Three Lions swim cap matches most swimwear.

Go Aussie

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! We may be bias, but the Go Aussie swim cap and football team are the best! The Go Aussie is our top choice of the Funky Trunks World Cup swim cap line.

Die Adler

Die Adler, or the Eagle, swim cap is great swim cap for all those Germany fans out there.  We think the colours would look nice on you too.

La Furia

La Furia is a nice swim cap and all, there is just one caveat. The La Furia team is in the same groups as the Aussies, so we don’t know if we can actually endorse this cap. Sorry!



Diana Chlorine Resistant Kneelengths

Finding the perfect style of kneelength training suit can be quite the challenge. Some designs of these swimsuits are just way too loud, and they are covered with tacky decoration from the knees to the straps! While others kneelength training suits are just too plain with just black and nothing else. How boring!

We thought that Diana struck a fantastic balance between too much and too little to create their tasteful line of kneelength training suits that come in two fun designs. We wanted to take the time to introduce these fabulous new kneelength training suits that are perfect for swim training, aqua aerobics and general pool use. The unique material of the Diana swimsuits makes the material last longer and dry faster, so this is a swimsuit you’ll have around for a long time!

First up is the futuristic design of the Galactic Kneelength Chlorine Resistant Training Suit. This training suit features an aquatic laser shooting across right side of the training suit in Galactic Blue Kneelength or Galactic Purple Kneelength. The neon of the design stands out from the black of the rest of the training suit. The Diana logo is scrolled tastefully across the laser in cursive to create an out of this world look. Perfect for ladies who like a splash of neon to liven up their workout!

Next we have the whimsical daisy design of the Daisy Kneelength Chlorine Resistant Training Suit. A light purple floral design with stripes gently graces the bust of this kneelength training suit. The Diana logo is scrolled countless times in fun falling letters in the background of this design. For those of you in the United States, this is a perfect style of swimsuit to welcome in spring. Even when the seasons change again, who doesn’t want to relish the wonderful weather of spring everyday by wearing this Diana kneelength training suit?

Stay tuned to our blog to hear all about the latest styles and trends in athletic swimwear fashion.

-Happy Swimming!



Finishing is Everything


College swimming coach and writer Matthew Allan hit the nail on the head when he wrote about swimming:

“In our sport it is natural and necessary to set up goals to inspire us. We all want to achieve the next level, the break-thru performance. What we (all of us) must not forget is that the journey to these goals is the best part. The daily process of obtaining success takes up the majority of our time and effort throughout our lives. Remember to appreciate what you’ve done in the past and what you are doing in the present on your way to higher goals. This will allow you to always strive for something more without missing out on the fact that your path to success is as much a starting point as it is a finish line.”

All swimmers know the importance of finishing. Whether it is finishing the last lap at practice or finishing at a meet, pushing to the end is the most important thing to all swimmers. Sacrificing any finish line, no matter how small, is as good as giving up. Just pushing halfway is just something that swimmers do not do.

So what keeps you going in water? Your family? Your team? Your dreams? The bar of chocolate you get after practice? Or is it your swimwear?

We at swimmer.com.au are obviously a little bias on this point, but we find that swimwear can serve as a symbol of everything that we want to be in and out of the water. The perfect piece of fitness swimwear makes you feel at home in the pool, but also represents something to remind you to give everything you’ve got.

With this reasoning we absolutely love The Finals swimwear. The Finals represents our end goal to be first at the touch out when it comes times to compete, and all of the steps it takes to become a champion. Let us introduce you to our favourite mens jammers from The Finals swimwear that has the potential to transform your performance in the pool if you allow it.

The Aztec Blue & Green Jammers and The Aztec Multicolour Jammers both serve as a totem to the strength of the powerful fallen empire of the South American civilization, the Aztecs. Channel the energy of warriors with these jammers. They also just happen to be chlorine resistant jammers that ensure the powerful look these jammers doesn’t fade after the first few visits to the pool.

The Onyx Green Jammers and Onyx Blue Jammers allow you to gather strength from the onyx stone that is forms inside of lava. Only under pressure and heat can you and the onyx stone truly reach your maximum potential for greatness. The sleek curved panel of the print is fired up with a colourful print that looks bad ass in the water.

Do you sometimes get a little too heated at swim matches, so much so that it throws off your game? In ancient times European soldiers used to use the amethyst stone to protect them in the battle field and keep them level headed. You can channel this ancient energy by getting the cooling Amethyst Jammers.
