Speedo LZR Racer – 18 world swimming records since 16th Feb 08
As for today, 19 world swimming records have been broken since 16th Feb 2008, in 6 weeks times. Another surprising fact, 18 out of the 19 broken records were achieved by swimmers wearing Speedo LZR Racer in competitions.
Now, it is obvious that this swimsuit is able to help swimmers to swim faster. Even by as little as 2%, it is still an advantage. For the swimmers who are not sponsored by Speedo, it is a difficult decision to make now. Olympic medal is too big to miss.
Actually, I am more concerned now if swimming has become a wealth competition instead of sports competition. For those who cannot afford the USD550 price tag, how are they going to compete?
