Full body swimsuits eliminated by swimming's governing organization

The full-body suits that have been featured in many record-setting performances, and referred to by some as "technological doping" have been banned by FINA, swimming's governing body.

"The top suits — Speedo’s LZR Racer and an Italian model called Jaked — provide buoyancy and increase endurance, but now, apparently, it’s all coming to an end."

It should be interesting to see how long it takes swimmers to break the records that were achieved with these things.
