Italy Bans The LZR Racer From Its Olympic Trials


The Italian Swimming Federation FIN has decided to ban the new Speedo LZR Racer swimsuit from their forthcoming Olympic trials, based on FINA rule 5.6: “The manufacturers must ensure that the approved new swimsuit will be available for all competitors”.

Speedo responds expecting that the same rule will be applied to other manufacturers that have introducted new swimsuits, and promise that the LZR Racer swimsuits will be available for all swimmers at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Manchester, 9th-13th April 2008.
