PARIS — Less than a year after retiring from professional sports, French swimming champion Laure Manaudou has launched a line of swimwear, called LM Design, in partnership with Topsec Equipement, a French sporting goods distributor.
At a press conference here Tuesday, Manaudou said, “It was important for me to not just be the face of a brand, but to take pleasure in what I do. I always wanted to design my own swimwear, and this gives me the opportunity to stay in the domain of sports.”
