US Olympic Trials - It's Not The Suit & Photos from Sunday Morning -- August 13, 2000
By Michael Collins
Body suits have been a big controversy going into this meet. I have been watching to see who is wearing them and who isn't. Here are some of my observations:
Full sleeves are not too popular.
Sleeveless with long legs seem to be popular with Freestylers and flyers.
Breaststrokers and IM'ers seem to use body suits the least.
People wearing body suits are not dominating.
Here's what some of the top athletes are wearing:
Full Legs and Sleeves:
Sleeveless with legs:
Dara Torres, Jenny Thompson, Josh Davis, Courtney Shealy,
Sleeveless with knee length:
Misty Hyman, Amy Van Dyken, Tom Dolan, Lindsay Benko
"Bike" shorts (men only):
Lenny Krayzelburg, Neil Walker, Ed Moses, Gary Hall Jr., Tom Wilkens,
Kristy Kowal, Maddy Crippen, Christina Teuscher, Megan Quann, Jenna Street, Amanda Beard, Staciana Stitts
