Thanks from Zak
Oct 25th… It was a very sad day here for many. Rolf C Hagen passed away a few days ago, and it was in today’s newspaper, causing a lot of talk everywhere. Mom, who knows members of the family, had heard about it ahead but did not say anything. She was waiting for the obit to be published. Yes… she is going to the funeral to pay her last respects. On a happier note, word got out to Speedo Canada, that I am giving Speedo a lot of publicity. Mom has been in email contact with one nice person from Speedo, whose Montreal office is very close to our home. The doorbell rang early this afternoon, and mom was handed a package by one of the shipping companies. I won’t tell you about it yet. Mom got Dad to film the entire thing and we hope BC allows it on here. It has been uploaded and we are waiting. A warning… do not view it with food or drink in your mouth. LOL And now, another chapter of the History of the Speedo…

LZR Racer:
Perhaps the company's most controversial move came with 2008's unveiling of the LZR (pronounced "lazer") Racer — a suit, as Speedo's website boasts, "so fast, it was banned from competition". Indeed the LZR Racer was banned by FINA in 2009, but not until swimmers wearing this suit had already broken at least 46 world records. The super smooth suit, which was optimized with the help of NASA wind tunnels, uses welded seams and multiple woven fabrics to reduce drag by up to six percent. In addition, the LZR, like the Fastskin, utilizes a core stabilizer, which acts almost as a girdle, to reduce muscle movement. This is designed to help the swimmer maintain the proper angle in the water for longer periods of time. Popular Science magazine named this suit to their "100 Best of What's New '08" list, calling it "The fastest swimsuit in the world".
