Any time a politician utilizes an emotional argument to validate their political point and then salts that argument with a subjective statement posed as a fact, you are about to be bamboozled.
Chuck Wieglus is really working it with this statement that he probably had his PR people write.
From Swimming World:
"As an organization, we have been working with FINA and other swimming nations to find a solution that will ensure a fair and even playing field for all swimmers, and that will ultimately advance the best interests of our sport," said Chuck Wielgus, USA Swimming Executive Director. "With Saturday's vote, our membership has sent a clear message that it wanted this action taken sooner, rather than later. We hope that this action will put the emphasis back where it belongs – on our athletes, their training and hard work."
What bravado and arrogance! Saying tech-suits are not fair is like saying the Titanic is unsinkable and both statements are easily disproved. For instance, what if every swimmer in a race wore a tech-suit! Why would that be unfair? Hmmm, because Michael Phelps would lose?
Mark Savage shot that photo of a swimmer at the Mission Viejo. If you look at the photo in the masthead, this is the third photo in that start progression.
