We are ‘over the moon’ to announce a new sponsorship agreement with teen sensation, Ruta Meilutyte.

At only 15 years old, Ruta is the youngest Olympian in Lithuanian history!

Born in Kaunas, Lithuania, Ruta started swimming at the age of seven…. She gained amazing results (see full press release), at many swimming events, but it was her gold in the 100m breaststroke in London, that made the swimming world sit up and take notice.

Not only is Ruta a gifted swimmer, but she is also a truly lovely person, who cares very much about issues relating to her country. It is little wonder she has fast become a national hero…..

 On the new partnership:

“We are really thrilled to have recruited Ruta, one of the world’s most   incredible swimming talents,” said Giuseppe Musciacchio, Arena General Manager – Brand Development.

 “Ruta Meilutyte is a phenomenal athlete, and a truly exceptional case in Lithuanian swimming history. – saidTomas Kucinskas, President of Lithuanian Federation

 “I am really pleased to be working with Arena – it is a brand that I respect and I favour their racing suits over any other. – said Ruta Meilutyte

We wish Ruta a full, fun and wonderful future…..

Ruta followed her Waterinstinct!………Do you follow yours?
