Lane 1 - Courier Mail posts "James Magnussen and freestyle relay team fail to win a medal. HEY bombed, but not in the way they thought they would. Australia's men's 4x100m freestyle team, the so-called "Weapons of Mass Destruction", were the hottest of hot favourites to win the gold medal this morning but all four swimmers swam badly – including James "The Missile" Magnussen – as they missed a medal completely. Bombing out in a big way rather than destroying their rivals, Magnussen, James Roberts, Eamon Sullivan and Matt Targett were behind all the way, beaten by the French, the USA (featuring Michael Phelps) and Russia. Magnussen's poor performance was the biggest shock."

Some of those will show up in suits for recreational swimmers too. Speedo's new Fastskin3 Super Elite racing suit features zoned compression and a body stability web — a network of bonded seams that provides targeted support. Both Tyr (which is pronounced "tier") and Speedo have incorporated features of their racing series into swimwear for the nonprofessional swimmer. "Tyr's Olympic technology is available to aspiring swimmers of all ages," said Kristen Gaidish, the company's marketing manager. "When designing competitive, training and aquatic fitness swimwear, Tyr puts the same emphasis on fabric sourcing, fit and durability that we do on our technical suits."
