Is Speedo Cheating?

July 27, 2008

With the new launch of Speedo’s LZR racer swimsuit, a proven formula to stop skin flab and reduce friction while racing, one must wonder if something like this should be legal. Sports purists would probably agree, claiming that swimming was the individual body’s work, and any help to reduce the body’s natural speed flaws while moving in the water would be the equivalent to doping. Plus, the team speedo will only be available to team USA, so you can imagine how the rest of the world feels about it. The suit, rigorously tested by nasa, is “virtually guaranteed” to break a wold record next month in Beijing — says Speedo, and the world will certainly be watching. Tell me what you think about this below.
