Twelve Bar has created a limited edition t-shirt to commemorate the achievements of 17-year-old Brooklyn native Lia Neal, the second ever African American woman to represent the USA in swimming at the Olympics.

Dubbed “Swim Brooklyn,” the tees take inspiration from Spike Lee’s graphic sensibilities to classic Brooklyn hip-hop album covers to Jackie Robinson and the Brooklyn Dodgers. The t-shirt features an image of the Brooklyn Bridge with a wave design underneath it and the words “Swim Brooklyn!” in the Team USA colors across it.

All proceeds from the sale of this t-shirt will be donated to the USA Swimming Foundation and is available for purchase now on www.twelvebar.com/tshirt_graphic_swim_brooklyn.—Mariel Concepcion
