Lifeguard fired for refusing to wear Speedos ?


61-year-old Roy Lester says he lost his job as a lifeguard because he wanted to take the annual swimming test in bicycle shorts instead of the tiny trunks. “They were just trying to get rid of the older guys. To me the whole key to being a good lifeguard is experience.” Lester is a triathlete, but said no one his age should be wearing tiny trunks. State officials declined to comment.
