Streamlined News: Arena Suit Update; Phelps on New List

PHOENIX, Arizona, May 7. THE news about Arena's swimsuit exchange that broke yesterday continues to create conversation today, as swimmers voice concerns about getting the right suit in time for the two big meets happening this weekend. Arena has already said it will provide instant exchanges of the Powerskin Carbon Pro at the Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte this weekend to those who bought non-compliant version. And late yesterday, the suit maker said competitors at this week's Masters nationals in Indianapolis will also get the opportunity to get their suits exchanged. Both meets start on Thursday.

Michael Phelps has been spending his time touring the best golf courses in the world in 2013, but that didn't keep him from being the second-most influential athlete of 2013 by Forbes behind football player Tim Tebow. Phelps isn't the only one on the list famous for what he did last year. Track star Usain Bolt ranked third behind Phelps on the list, and gymnast Gabby Douglas ranked seventh.
