Nike allows Speedo suits

June 15, 2008


— Nike is allowing seven of the Olympic hopefuls it sponsors to don Speedo International's new full-body swimsuit instead of the Nike product for the U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha later this month.

Nike spokesman Derek Kent said the exception is a limited one to allow top swimmers to experiment with other products, satisfy their curiosity and compete without distractions.

Since the February launch of Speedo's sleek LZR Racer, swimmers wearing the suit have broken 38 world records.
