simple, go back to standard lycra.

Exactly what spudman said. If he's frustrated with it all then he should change to a suit with no controversy surrounding it at all. Or might that mean he won't win as much?

If he can prove that he can do the same time in a normal swimsuit, without any performance enhancing drugs or anything, then I'll believe that the fancy swimsuit doesn't constitute cheating. Until then, this one and the GB designed one they permitted in the olympics, are equal to amphetamines in my view.

But if he could swim that fast without it he wouldn't be whinging now would he?

BTW, what sort of suit was Lochte wearing when he broke the previous record?

Make it simple - in the spirit of the original Olympic games, just even the playing field and have all the competitors compete in the buff.

Added bonus - more people would actually watch.
