Swimming on the Wall Swimming On The Wall Founders fell in love with sport and anything related. They knew that they wanted to start an online business for others who share in their love of the sport. Now they sell everything from medal holders for swimmers to race bibs displays, running bracelets, and running tees. They offer the highest quality of products on the market and strive to keep everything they offer as ‘green’ as possible, making sure that all of their display and medal holders are made from recycled MDF wood and non-chemical based varnishes. As owner-athletes, it’s important for them to do everything they can to keep the environment looking as best as possible.
