Based on the most recent FINA ruling that elite swimsuits must be made of 100% textile only fabric beginning on January 1, 2010, the Speedo LZR Racer may not be used in FINA competitions after this date. If USA Swimming and NCAA follow FINA's mandate they will also ban the suit. It is our understanding that effective immediately this suit is not allowed in high school competitions in the USA. We recommend visiting www.fina.org, www.usaswimming.org, www.nfhs.org www.nfhs.org and www.ncaa.org for up-to-date information.

With FINA putting more restrictions on "suit technology", I guess trying to sell the LZR at the usual multi-hundred dollar price tag isn't getting much business anymore and now Speedo can't get rid of 'em fast enough.

There's an old saying in business and marketing "Sorry, that's the way the cookie crumbles". :badday:
