More swimsuit drama heading into London Olympics
With the London Olympics less than two months away, there's more chaos in the swimsuit department.
When aquatic leaders decided to ban rubberized bodysuits three years ago, it was thought that would end the technological arms race roiling the waters. And, indeed, there's not nearly as much focus on what everyone is wearing or how many world records will be broken at these games.
But, mirroring the anarchy from the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2009 world championships, swimmers are now shedding suits provided by their sponsors to wear apparel perceived to be faster.
There have been complaints about Speedo's new three-part system. And teams are jockeying to make sure their athletes have the best available attire -- no matter their official supplier.
