Guess who's back in the swimsuit again - Mr. Michael Phleps!

I bet Under Armour is partially responsible for this change of mind - just a guess.

 From Swimming World:
"...Baltimore Bullet has grown bored with the lack of structure of his current lifestyle and will shortly be back in the saddle in Colorado Springs with mentor Bob Bowman. ..."

Curious, why would you say that?

Why Under Armor? Why no Speedo?

Under Armor is parading him around lately. His contract is up or about to be up with Speedo and Michael Phelps made an appearance at the Under Armor annual meeting.

Under Armor is a $1.8-billon company. I estimated just before Arena was purchased that Speedo was a $350-million company.

Under armor has access to all the materials needed to make a swimsuit and can pay more than Speedo. Under Armour’s footwear sales, a small portion of the company’s U.S. business, made up 25 percent to 30 percent of sales in its Chinese stores.
