The invitation was kind of cool looking and I will post it once the event is over so as to share the images. For now the teaser shot above possibly features the new Fastskin3

World’s Leading Swimwear Brand set to Unleash its Newest, Pioneering Swimwear Innovation
LOS ANGELES (November 25, 2011) – Speedo is set to unleash its newest pioneering swimwear innovation after gaining FINA (Fédération Internationale de Natation) approval for a concept which is a world first for the sport of swimming – the Speedo FASTSKIN3.
The ground-breaking new development will be unveiled globally on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011 and will be worn by Team Speedo USA superstars Michael Phelps, Natalie Coughlin, Ryan Lochte, Dana Vollmer, Tyler Clary, Katie Hoff, Jessica Hardy, Christine Magnuson, Peter Vanderkaay, Kate Ziegler, Kara Lynn Joyce and Garrett Weber-Gale, and Speedo-sponsored international stars Rebecca Adlington (GBR) and James Magnussen (AUS), and many more, throughout the coming year.
Developed in Speedo’s top-secret global research and development unit, Aqualab, the brand has collaborated with world leaders in sports technology and science along with a number of the world’s leading swimmers to produce what is by far Speedo’s most advanced swimwear design since the introduction of new FINA regulations in January 2010.
The name FASTSKIN is known within the sport of swimming as being synonymous with Speedo’s reputation for pioneering new swim technologies, and FASTSKIN3 sees the famous name underpin an entirely new swimwear innovation.
Swimming phenomenon Ryan Lochte has led the early acclaim for FASTSKIN3, saying: “I’m like a single force, now I’m unstoppable.”
Speedo International President David Robinson said: “We are set to unveil an innovation that will inspire our swimmers and revolutionize the world of swimming once more. Everything comes together on Nov. 30 and we can’t wait to unveil the results.”
The new Speedo competitive swimwear range for 2012 will be available in December 2011, along with the 2012 Team Speedo Collection, a new line of deck wear and team apparel inspired by Speedo’s top stars, which will also debut at the Nov. 30 event in New York City. The event will also showcase products from Speedo’s 2012 Active Recreation and Swim Fitness lines.
