Great Britain's Rebecca Adlington Speaks Out Against Suits

I call 100% BS on this. No complaints from her or the other Speedo-sponsored swimmers last year when they had the LZR's and thus a distinct advantage...

Now all of a sudden, they're calling for a "level playing field" because the LZR is thought to be second-rate compared to the Hydrofoil. X-Glide, B70, etc and they're locked into contracts. Tough luck - your turn to be at a disadvantage. :bitching:

Tough luck - your turn to be at a disadvantage. :bitching: This isn't a case as with the Germans last year. Most can just wear a different suit with the logos marked out if they choose.
