USMS response to FINA speedsuit ruling

I have to agree with others that this letter was just baffling. Why would I want to buy a technical suit now, when I can only use it ostensibly for a few more months? Are sponsors breathing down the neck of USMS?


U.S. Masters Swimming Statement on Swimsuits
10/11/09
Contact: Rules Committee Chair, Kathy Casey, rules@usms.org

Dear Swimmer ,

The FINA Masters Committee has recommended that the FINA Bureau, meeting in mid-January, approve its recommendation that Masters swimmers be governed by the same swimsuit rules as the elite pool swimmers. If the Bureau approves the committee's recommendation, it is anticipated it would go into effect after the Bureau meeting. If this recommendation becomes policy with the FINA Bureau, USMS will implement it for our sanctioned swim meets.

For the time being and until the FINA Bureau issues its policy for Masters, the June 1, 2009 ruling that allowed technical suits in USMS swim meets is still in effect. If you choose to compete in a USA Swimming sanctioned meet, you must follow USA Swimming rules.

If you would like more information on purchasing technical suits, you may contact your swimsuit dealer or any of the following:

It is definitely odd.

I guess something like the blue seventy suit could do double duty at meets till January, then consign it to warmer open water days ...

I think so many people were so confused by the suit situation USMS felt it had to say something... even if the something was essentially nothing. The sales pitch was a little awkward, but they are on the verge of outlawing the biggest moneymakers all those brands produce... I'd be kissing their asses a little bit too seeing as I think most of them are on yearly renewable sponsorship contracts.

Wendy it's funny you mention that... I bought an extra blueseventy to wear in open water workouts just in case they give up and stop making them!

hi ppl. I'm honestly into shoes and I was searching for that meticulous make. The prices as regards the boots were all over 250 dollars on every page. But completely I base this site selling them for half price. I absolutely like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will probably buy those. what is your opinion?
