Sprint Aquatics is proud of the history of the company. It all started in 1972 when the original owner, Dianne Rothhammer's daughter made her mark in Olympic history by winning a Gold medal in the 800 meter freestyle event (8:53:68) and a Bronze in the 200 meter free (2:04:92). One year later, following her success as the youngest individual swimming gold medalist, she was nominated as the North American Athlete of the Year.
The 70's were an epic time. Shortly before her daughter's debut in Munich, Dianne Rothhammer developed a company to provide aspiring Olympic swimmers and recreational swimmers alike with innovative products: The company she created was Rothhammer International Inc.
In April of 1972 Rothhammer International Inc. established its reputation for initiative and innovation by becoming the first goggle supplier in the United States. For years U.S. swimmers had been exposing their eyes to PH balancing chemicals that would often result in hours of painful, foggy, and teary eyed vision, but Rothhammer's offering of a new product would alleviate the post swimming blur.
Laurel Maas and the Sprint Aquatics team continue to uphold the integrity of Rothhammer International by extending excellent customer service, maintaining product availability, while staying innovative with the aquatic industry and its growing popularity as the benefits of water continue to be uncovered.
