I am amazed at how powerful Speedo is. Bowman makes a threat, he effects all of swimming.
ROME — Swimming's governing body has set a firm date of Jan. 1 for banning record-breaking bodysuits, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Friday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement by FINA had not been made.
The move comes after a threat from Michael Phelps' coach to pull his swimmer from competition until the suits are banned.
