Shirtless Athletes Help Launch Speedo Fastskin3 Swimsuits [PHOTOS]

Olympic swimmers Georgia Hohmann, Christian Vom Lehn, Fabio Scozzoli, Rebecca Adlington, Rafa Munoz and Adam Brown were all on hand for the launch of the Speedo Fashion Show and Fastskin3 Racing System Launch at the Tramshed today in London, England.

Two years after the roadblock was put in place to prevent manufacturers from producing competition swimsuits that significantly enhance performance, Speedo has gone in another direction developing a suit, cap and goggles combination for the London Olympics that it claims will be the most streamlined in history.

Swimming stars such as Michael Phelps and Rebecca Adlington have already confirmed they will wear the gear in competition in 2012 but if the development is as ground-breaking as speculation suggests then the unveiling could prompt their rivals into adopting the same technology in time for London.
