Phelps Will Wear Old Suit At World Cup

The greatest Olympian in history won’t be waiting until January 1, 2010 when the new full-body suits are made illegal to abandon them. He’ll be swimming the 100 free, 100 back, 100 butterfly and 200 IM at the European World Cup event in Sweden.

The new rules will limit suits to just above the knee. “I think it took something out of swimming by having the suits added. It took away from the personal accomplishment.” Phelps said.

One advantage he will have is that the World Cup event is only a 25 meter pool, have of the regulation 50 meter size. Phelps is probably the best turner in the world and will be able to use that to his advantage.
