The 28-year-old said she was now kitted by Arena, ending a long-running partnership with Speedo.

The partnership started this week and Coventry could not hide her excitement. “I love their collection,” she said. Arena is one of water sports’ leading brands.

Legendary sportswoman Coventry, who started swimming at the Olympics as a 16-year-old in Australia in 2000, is considered one of the strongest backstrokers and individual medley competitors in the world.

Coventry first shot into prominence at the 2004 Olympics in Greece, where she won gold, silver and bronze medals.

Four years later when she won four medals in Beijing Olympics. She is training in Monaco, at the invitation of that country's royal family, ahead of next year's event in England.
