Jaked Suit Failure: Seam splits up the rear of the pelvis area!

Poor woman! Brought her to tears as well. If I was the official I would have looked the other way and let her race or I would have held up the race up so she could change. Think Dara Torres hooking up Therese Alshammar in Beijing when she held up the race so Alshammar could change.

The incident was unintentional and one's "rear-end" is not a "modesty violation."

The woman was gracious and apologized and I hope we see her swim soon.

Rob of Robaquatics sent us this from the Dailymail.co.uk.

(She is embarassed enough; I won't mention her name.)

That's a nightmare! (From the size of split, I don't think she could have raced -- the race would have had to be held up.)
