$800 Speedo

This was a topic that was brought up the other day on TheSpeedoForum.com which I wasn’t aware of.

These speedos (worn by the British Diving team at the London Olympics) recently sold on eBay for 510 pounds – about USD$800.  Holy moly!!!!

Would you ever pay that much for a speedo?  Too rich for my taste.  I think I should go and get a bunch of these made up and then I could quit my day job.

Here are some pics of Tom Daley (British Diver) who made these speedo famous, expensive and famously expensive.

I love Speedos: wore them when I was swimming in college (still do), collect them, etc.

But NO WAY would I pay $800.00 for a pair unless I knew they were coming *directly* off the body of a current top-name swimmer – Tony Ervin, Ryan Lochte, Eric Shanteau or Peter Vanderkaay come to mind – or a former champion like Louganis, Lenzi (R.I.P.) or Biondi.

A guy’s gotta have his standards, after all.
