Why the speedo were banned? (YouTube)

I was watching this video.

At 6:14, the Rabbid try to adjust his green speedo higher, but the narrator tells him that If your suit goes up higher than your navel, and thus, he’s out of the swimming competition.

The question is: Why the super slick one-piece suit or speedo were banned from the swimming competition?

It’s a rules in competitive swimming. Men’s swimsuits can’t go above the navel or below the knee. As for why, I have no idea.


probably because they are to good

FINA, eventually, changed the rules against the LZR Racer & the Arena X-Glide suit, which is a bummer.
