Swimming in the Snow?

8 02 2010

The recent snow storms have been pretty bad. A few swimmers have been able to make it out to the pool to swim in the snow. Even the 2010 Olympic Aquatics Center saw some snow last month. Click here for more info about the London 2012 Olympic Aquatic Center.

Swimsuits Legal for 2010

4 01 2010

The new year brings with it all kinds of new laws and this year the sport of swimming is seeing some of its most significant rules ever. The swimsuit wars of 2009 have forced the swimming federation of FINA to impose strict rules regarding the styling and fabrication of swimsuit. Here is a quick rundown of the swimsuit rules for 2010:

Swimsuits must be made of woven materials, no more neoprene wetsuits like the Blueseventy and Jaked or even the Speedo LZR Racer swimsuits.

No zipper back suits, only open back suits.

No swimsuit coverage on the arms or past the knee. Goodbye to the Speedo Legskin swimsuits that have been so popular in the past few years.

No male suits above the waist.

So what swimsuits can you wear in 2010? The clear frontrunner in the 2010 suit war race is the Speedo LZR Elite swimsuit. The LZR Elite features the same LZR Pulse material as the LZR Racer and the Speedo FS-Pro, plus the bonded seams like the LZR Racer. Demand has been high for the Speedo LZR Elite since all of the other suit manufactures will not deliver their new suits until later this year.
