The battle of the swimsuits

The swimming events at the Beijing Olympics could be a battle between the new high-tech swimsuits. TYR Sport has just released its Tracer Rise suit. Speedo released their LZR Racer swimsuit in February and has already been worn in several new world records.

Speedo claims a performance enhancement 2 percent. TYR, is claiming an improvement of its suits of up to 4 percent.

“This technology hasn’t been seen before in the sport of swimming,” said Steve Furniss, TYR co-founder and a 1972 Olympic swimming medalist. “Tracer Rise propels the sport into an entirely new direction by pushing the innovation envelope. Fast just got faster.”
