Yesterday, Michael Phelps unveiled the high-tech swimsuit he will wear at next year's London Olympics. Phelps reportedly strutted the catwalk in Manhattan to launch the latest range of skin-tight suits by the makers, Speedo.
Sports 24 reports that Phelps looked more like Spiderman than the world's fastest swimmer as he launched the swimming gear flanked by American team-mates Ryan Lochte and Natalie Coughlin.
The makers Speedo say the swimsuit will give their swimmers a huge advantage over their rivals.
For Phelps, Sports24 quoted him as saying "Knowing that I'm in the best suit has always been something that I thought was a cool gift."
Ahead of the launch, according to The Star , he said: “Records are always made to be broken. In my eyes, that’s not a question,” indicating the impact the swimsuit would make in his overall performance at the London Olympics next year.
