Michael Phelps & Ryan Lochte Embrace The Return Of The Speedo

A multitude of world records were broken on the first day of the world swimming championships, sparking discussion by international swimming governing body, FINA, that new regulations will eliminate performance-enhancing swimsuits.

What exactly does this mean? Well, a possible return to the teeny, tiny Speedo suits. And Olympians Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte think that’s a great idea.

Phelps told reporters at a news conference, “Swimming will actually become swimming again. We’re all going to have the same exact suit.” In addition, Lochte tells Reuters, “I wish it went back to the old school, like banana hammocks. Jammers, I mean, I’m cool with that.”

I think we’re ALL cool with that.
