About Adolph Kiefer and Associates:
Adolph Kiefer & Associates was founded by Olympic swimmer Adolph Kiefer in 1946. As the official aquatics supplier to the 1948 U.S. Olympic Swim Team, Kiefer’s company introduced the nylon swimsuit as a lightweight alternative to wool and cotton suits and lower cost alternative to the silk suits used at the time. The 1948 Olympic Games debut launched the revolutionary nylon Kiefer suit to create a competitive swimming standard. Mr. Kiefer captured the Berlin gold at age 18; his overall competitive swimming record included more than 2,000 wins and only one loss.
He was a member of the inaugural group of championship swimmers inducted into the swimming hall of fame in 1965, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Mr. Kiefer celebrates his 90th birthday in late June 2008, and continues to dedicate his life to helping swimmers of all ages and abilities to pursue their dreams of swimming glory. The company sponsors a full calendar of competitive swimming events and is a top competitive swim team supplier. For more about Adolph Kiefer & Associates, visit http://www.kiefer.com .
