They're all wet

What's all the furor about the fast swimsuits? Improvements have been made to sports gear since day one.

In swimming, the flurry of records will be over much more quickly because once you get comfortable in your new suit, sheer athletic talent will again take over, new records will be difficult to attain, and the swimming pool will be level once more. Michael Phelps, talk your sponsor into springing for a new suit and get back into the swim. FINA, don't fool around with the flotation suits, just go with the flow.
