HuffPo takes an interest in swimming

With all the controversy surrounding these full-body high-tech swimsuits, I had never thought about the danger inherent in their construction. Ricky Berens discovered this in Rome on Sunday when his suit split while he was stretching.

If swimming is going to be this PG to PG-13 rated, then I want to lodge a formal complaint to FINA. Think of the children!! They and we don't want to see this. We would rather see our swimmers in rip-proof Speedos.

And, on another note, neither AP nor Getty Images took a photo of Mr. Berens' face in Rome. I wonder what distracted them.
