A revolutionary bodysuit has divided the world of swimming into the haves and the have nots just weeks before the Beijing Olympics, testing relationships between federations, athletes and rival suppliers.

Australian and US swimmers and others wearing the Speedo LZR Racer suit have set 38 world records since its introduction in February. Australian Libby Lenton said it made her feel she was swimming downhill.

As the buzz has grown an LZR is even on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in an exhibit on superheroes swimmers using other equipment are weighing the merits of breaking existing contracts and switching to Speedo.

Looks like a nice swimsuit.
