That said, anyone find it odd that all of these swimming events are setting new world records? There was one race where all three medalists broke the previous record. Makes you wonder... is it improved training? Lotions or caps that reduce drag? Or dare I say it, a new undetectable hormone/steroid?
The commentators were saying the other day that it's because of the new suits that the athletes have decided to wear, and the pool itself(the water cube) enhances the speed of the athletes.
The new swim suits also have some sort of bouyancy thing in the stomach, that is what is helping so much.
word is they may ban them after the olympics (these suits literally came in just before the olympics started).
