My wife is cleaning out the closet and found her S2000 from 1994. This suit is only FINA legal until the end of 2009. Should she wear in her Nov SCM meet? It is the only tech suit she owns.

It is legal, it is her decision. (Though I would be a little cautious...don't these things have a finite shelf life?)

She hasn't tried it on yet, but the suit has only been worn once, and it was rised, dried and stored in air conditioning for 15.5 years. It might be fine.

I think it would be pretty funny if she wore it.

From what I remember, she would probably be more comfortable in a normal competition suit.

If she still fits into it, that would be a cool thing !

For the voters who votes "What is an S2000":

The S2000 was THE tech suit from the 1992 Olympics and will become illegal in 2010. I have not been able to find a picture of one, but it was a high neck, zippered suit. I don't even know if they had models that had legs and arms, just a high neck is the only one I have seen.

Obviously you are not coming to Dallas for the DAM SCM meet :)
