the LZR racer

June 25, 2008

OK, enough with the Speedo jokes already. Their new swimsuit, the LZR racer, was released in February. Since then 38 world records have already been broken by swimmers wearing it. Unsurprisingly, all the Olympic teams are scrabbling to get theirs in time.

The technical details of the material and the design went past me but the fact that it is 70 times tighter than other suits grabbed my attention. Yikes! Everyone, breathe in and suit up for the Olympics…
