We reported on the types of technical swimsuits that the world's elite marathon swimmers wore at the 2008 World Open Water Swimming Championships (click here), but a majority of the 253 individuals who voted in our "Should technical swimsuits be banned by FINA?" poll believe that technical swimsuits should be banned. The results are as follows:
52% (133 individuals) voted YES.
35% (91 individuals) voted NO.
11% (29 individuals) voted DON'T CARE.
