British triathlon and open water swimming brand Zone3 today announce a long term partnership with swimming great, Mark Foster in conjunction with the launch of their new range of swimwear which includes a signature ‘Foster’ collection.

Mark Foster is one of Britain’s most successful swimmers. He has six World Championship titles, eleven European Championship titles, and two Commonwealth titles to his name. After an impressive career that spanned two decades, Mark decided to hang up his ‘Speedos’ following the 2008 Olympic Games but has by no means stepped away from the pool.

Recognised as one of the faces of British swimming, Mark has settled into his role as the elder statesman and is highly knowledgeable when it comes to all things swimming. Since the age of seven, swimming has been a major part of Mark’s life and he’s still closely involved with the sport today – swimming regularly (albeit at a slightly more leisurely pace), running coaching master-classes with aspiring Olympians, and commentating on the current crop of Olympians for the BBC.

As part of the partnership, Mark will be launching his own ‘MF-X’ range of Zone3 swimwear with both training garments and performance, FINA approved race wear.

MF-X was born out of a shared passion between Mark and Zone3, and a desire to create product that better serves swimmers – both in form and function, performance, and value. Mark will be working closely with the designers at Zone3, combining their technical product knowledge and industry expertise with his experience, feedback and creative guidance.

Mark understands better than anyone how the small details make big differences in the water and this eye for detail has been put into every product – from the fabric choice, to panel construction and fit. Every item that wears the ‘MF-X’ badge has been scrutinised and refined by Mark, and is only signed off after he’s personally tested it.
