Deanna Panting has an extensive athletic background with a competitive history that includes Track & Field, Powerlifting & Bobsleigh as well as 8 years of World Cup Skeleton racing on the Canadian National team, winning World Cup medals in all colours.
She combines this knowledge of what an athlete needs from a race suit, both physically & psychologically & integrates it into a sport-specific design, relying on a clothing design background that includes more than 18 years of experience in the race suit industry.
To add the third portion of this triple threat in the elite race suit business, Deanna has worked for the last 10+ years on the research & extensive testing phases of fabrics, race suit designs & seam placement to lessen the drag coefficients & giving our customers every aerodynamic benefit when they go to the line. Extensive work with Canada’s “Own the Podium Fund” leading up to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics which enabled a level of experience & access to facilities & research teams that few, if any, other designers in the world, have the privilege to be associated with.
While such a varied & successful competitive sports background is something to be proud of, Deanna admits to being most proud of watching her race suits on athletes, achieving their goals at the World & Olympic level.
Deanna & Qwixskinz continues to work with various nations, in multiple sports disciplines at the elite level.
We are also expanding our product lines to include the development & state/provincial levels to allow athletes & teams access to better quality race suits with a more affordable price point.
