Lara’s love of Funkita swimwear was helped by her mother’s business as a Funkita retailer in South Africa and her passion for collecting now extends to Funkita’s technical suit, the APEX Predator X, which she uses at every opportunity, including at the Commonwealth Games. “It’s the most comfortable wetsuit available, and I feel strong in the water.”
