Interesting article on the new Speedo and TYR suits.

You have to register to read NYT but it's worth the 3 mintues.

Yes and last week's edition of Sports Illustrated had pictures of the Aussies in the newest Speedos...they look like freaks. My only problem is to long for the days when you could see the magnificient physiques of swimmers unadorned by this high tech material. Certainly reduces the spectator appeal of our sport.

BTW, I heard in the grapevine that people are not optimstic that FINA will approve the arm bands for the TRY suit based on the material on the inside of the forearms.

I just saw the picture in Sports Illustrated of the Aussies in their new Speedos. YUCK! They look terrible. GROSS!
