Fina, the global governing body of aquatic sports, has sealed long-term extensions to sponsorship deals with Duraflex and Malmsten.
Duraflex, Fina’s official supplier of diving boards and diving board stands, has agreed a new eight-year deal, from 2017 to 2024.
Swedish brand Malmsten will remain Fina’s official supplier of swimming racing lane lines as well as water polo goals and field of play equipment until 2020. The co-operation with Malmsten dates back to 2009.
“Fina highly values this long-term relationship and is confident that the equipment supplied by Malmsten contributes to the overall success of FINA showcase event,” Fina president Julio Maglione said.
“Fina and Duraflex both strive to grow diving in new and exciting ways, for the benefit of our athletes and officials,” he added.
Both brands played a central role at this summer’s Fina World Championships in Kazan, Russia.
