Ellie Faulkner Joins Funkita and Funky Trunks Down Under!

24 October 2018

Ellie Faulkner
Olympian Ellie Faulkner makes the switch from F-Teamer to Funkita and Funky Trunks employee.

Dual British Olympian Ellie Faulkner may have decided to hang up her racing suit for good but she won't be far away from the water having accepted a job at Funky HQ! Ellie's resume includes two European Championships, two Commonwealth Games, and two Olympic Games. She had a stellar 2018, winning three Commonwealth Games bronze medals and gold in the women's 4 x 200m Freestyle relay at the European Championships in Glasgow. She left the pool on a high and packed up her life to move Down Under and start working with Funkita after being part of the F-Team family for the last 6 years.

Transitioning from the pool to the workforce can be a challenging step for swimmers but Ellie has landed on her feet putting her swimwear knowledge to good use as she travels to Australia to sell the Funky Trunks and Funkita products.

Ellie still loves wearing new Funkitas like the Night Cat Cutaway One Piece!

"Funkita has been an amazing support to me throughout my career and to join the team after my decision to retire and travel to Australia was too good an opportunity to miss. I feel I can utilize my knowledge of the brands and competitive swimming to help me achieve in the role and help the company progress even further. It's so exciting to be part of such a dynamic company and of course to be living Down Under!"

Where possible, Funky Trunks and Funkita offer work opportunities to our F-Teamers that fit in with their busy training schedule. It's a great way to help them develop workplace skills and gain valuable experience. We're so excited to have Ellie on board and we wish her the best as she takes on this new challenge!
