    All was good last week as i drove to the pool. Was going through some rescue skills that i was gonna throw at our most recent divemaster trainees. Got to the pool, popped on the wetsuit and hopped into the water...suddenly i thought that the water was a little colder than normal, i checked my zipper cos i thought i left it open a little but it was fine! Anyhoo i thought nothing of it and started the class

    As one of the DM's was "rescuing" me, he lifted me out of the pool on to the side, so there i was lying on my back "unconscious", when all of a sudden i heard a huge burst of laughter...seems i was right, there was water getting into my suit alright...but this time it was courtesy of some bad stitching in the crotch of the suit....AAAAGGGH!! :11:

    I believe some of my students had nightmares that night...

    The only reason a north american wears a speedo is under a wet suit, they are not even used by olympic swimmers any more.

    I seem to remember someone talking about relief zippers, or was it just plain relief orifices??

    I see many swim teams practice on a weekly basis.
    They all wear speedos. They can't afford the special suits the olympians wear (those suits run over $400 - the material is actually unidirectionally low drag.)
