A Guide On How To Emulate Michael Phelps

Aug 22, 2008
If you have been inspired by the Olympics there are plenty of gadgets to get you fit and fast so when it comes to 2012 you are raring to go. Here are just some from the wonderful world of swimming.
If money is no object then top of your swimming list will be the Speedo LZR Racer swimsuit. Worn by all the top Olympians, it is going on sale to the general public for those keen to go faster.

The most famous of swimmers to embrace the suit is Michael Phelps, the trouble is for us mere mortals its going to set you back around 550 USD when it becomes available in October later this year. The first fully bonded bodysuit is a full-length bonded suit with seams ultrasonically welded together that according to Speedo creates low profile silhouette and reduces skin friction drag.

In the first 8 days of swimming at the Beijing games, 23 out of 25 World records have been won by athletes wearing Speedo LZR RACER with 94 percent of gold medals at the games have been won and 89 percent of all medals by swimmers wearing the swimsuit.

Just make sure you aren't overtaken by the 85-year-old slow-coach when wearing it, that really could be embarrassing. Okay so we do not all need to go faster than a dolphin, swimming can be boring at the best of times so what about livening it up with a waterproof headphones set.

The new range from H2O is called the AMPHIBX will offer a 100 percent watertight secure seal up to 12ft underwater, the ability to control touch and click wheel controls even under water and come with a connector for using a standard headphone plug under water.

Besides the iPhone the case range will offer underwater protection for the iPod players, iPod touch, as well as most mp3 players and phones. The AMPHIBX series is designed to accommodate more than one specific device without sacrificing performance say its makers.

The company is hoping that users will use the soon to be released SURGE bass-amplified waterproof headphones. Available in the US this month the cases are expected to cost around 69.99 USD to 79.99 USD.

Finally if you have got to do some swimming you will need a pool. Thanks to the wonders of Google Maps raucous revellers are using Google Earth to find new venues to party in. Revellers rules include stipulating that everyone has to wear fancy dress and also bring a bike to allow a fast getaway if the pool owner appears. A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police warned owners of swimming pools should be on their guard.
