Up to Speedo

Whether you're following the Beijing games or not, everyone is talking about the swimming Olympian sensation Michael Phelps. He broke his own record with his first dip in the pool during the 400m individual medley and is looking to break Mark Spitz's record of seven gold medals at a single Olympics back in 1972...but more importantly, just check out how he looks in a Speedo.

Besides Olympic success, Michael is swimming in financial success with a multi-million dollar endorsement deal with Speedo. It truly is the American dream personified when a young amateur athlete from Rodgers Forge Maryland can make six figures just for wearing a skimpy brief, but we're no strangers to this athlete endorsement phenomenon. Nike is paying Tiger Woods, Maria Sharpova, and Derek Jeter handsomely to sport the Nike Swoosh, and I'm not even going to begin to guess how much tennis stars and sisters Venus and Serena Williams make to show off their tennis whites. So for an athlete today it seems your regimen is train, train, train, win the game, break the record, and look good in your athletic gear while doing it.

If you want to look as good as Michael Phelps in his athletic gear, first hit the gym, then the swimming pool, then Total Nutrition...and finally slip into some Speedos of your own. Catalogs.com is proud to jump onto the Speedo bandwagon with three catalogs featuring men's and women's slick Speedo styles that are endorsed by Michael Phelps himself: Swim to Win, Pure Blue Swim and Trisports.com.

I can't promise you'll look like Michael Phelps in your Speedo, or win a gold medal...but it's a start.
