A3 Performance proudly announces that breaststroke extraordinaire Emily McClellan re-signed her agreement with the brand through the 2016 Olympic Trials. After her first summer of long course training last summer with the Minnesota Gophers and a solid eight months of training with the USC Trojans, McClellan is feeling good about her training and her partnership with A3 Performance. McClellan is a small town girl from Delavan, Wisconsin who made a name for herself after an outstanding collegiate career with the UW-Milwaukee Panthers. Her career was highlighted by her 2014 NCAA Runner-Up finish in the 100-yard breaststroke. Her 57.76 finish made her a part of history as the third fastest time on record and the third woman ever to break 58 seconds! Determined to rise to the top of breaststroke competition, McClellan moved out to Southern California to strengthen her training under head coach Dave Salo and the USC Trojans. Moving across the country to train with the Trojan Swim Club has been quite the transition, but the fast-approaching long course season is likely to be a great success for McClellan. McClellan has represented A3 for the past year out at Southern California and will continue representing the brand through trials.
“I chose to resign with A3 because I love their products and loving what I race in gives me confidence, and that confidence will be key going in to Olympic Trials” said McClellan.The number of athletes representing A3 Performance is growing and consequently the brand is expanding. A3 is excited to have a representative like McClellan stick around a little bit longer.
“Emily has been a phenomenal ambassador for the brand over the past year and I feel really good about what she will continue to do through trials,” said A3 Performance CEO Dan Meinholz. “She has put forth a lot of effort in both her training and representing A3, and the time is definitely coming where we see all of that hard work pay off.”McClellan continues to train hard at USC working on some stroke changes and making improvements every day. Looking forward, A3 Performance is excited about what McClellan will do with both her career and the brand.
