On September 12, Panerai announced that World and Olympic champion and world record holder Sun Yang has become their new brand ambassador.
At the 2019 Gwangju FINA World Championships, Sun Yang took home gold in both the 200 and 400 meter freestyle. Over the years, he has amassed 3 Olympic golds and 11 World Championships gold medals. After the 2017 Budapest FINA World Championships, Sun Yang became the first swimmer to win the gold medal in all of the middle-to-long-distance (200, 400, 800 and 1500m) freestyle events at the FINA World Championships.
“I have always loved the products and the history of Panerai, and it is an honor for me to become Panerai’s brand ambassador. I have known since I was a kid that I can always become a better swimmer, and this belief helped me to overcome my limits. This is true with Panerai too. In their more than 150 years history, they kept improving and innovating the design and manufacturing of watches.” Said Sun Yang.
Founded in 1860, Panerai is an Italian watch manufacturer known for their high quality luxury watches.
