19 long-course and 11 short-course world records have now fallen since the launch of the Speedo LZR Racer swim suit in February, of which the LZR was worn in all but one long-course and 2 short-course events.

In the remaining record breaking events, the swimmers wore other brands of high tech full-body swimsuits.

According to the CNN, U.S. head coach Mark Schubert believes that every record in the sport could fall at the Beijing Olympics.

The technology advantage of the new Speedo’s is so big, that according to TimesOnline, the main rivals have let it be known that they will not penalise athletes who wear other apparel when racing for a national team sponsored by Speedo.
