Default Construction title for the swimming World Cup

Do I only think so or is the sport swimming developing to a farce?

In Olympia Nike had the best swimsuit and therefore swimmer with a Nike swimsuit dominated most of the time, now Adidas developed a new, better swimsuit and suddenly even Phelps can be beaten easily.

Swimming seems to develop like Formula 1, not the best swimmer, but the best material wins a medal.

There should be a standard swimsuit design worn by all.

Never happen - too much money to be made in endorsements. A sad reality. These events have become so commercialized that they're not fun anymore.
