Phelps on re-signing:“If you think about it, I’ve been with the brand since I was 16. And it has been the only suit that I’ve ever worn in my life.”
Due to FINA’s ruling that will ban bodysuits next year, Speedo’s LZR Racer business has come to an abrupt end. The company is now selling the suits at 50 percent off on its Web site.
Gromek on the sudden change and how it has affected business:“Bad news, good news. Bad news, we could never meet demand for the suit. Turns into a good story. We didn’t have many…We obviously stopped production on the suit and will try to make the distributors whole in this situation.”
