The head coach of the Australian swimming team Don Talbot says it is legal
for swimmers to use full-length suits at the Olympic Games.
The president of the Australian Olympic Committee, John Coates, says the
rules about using the suits are "pretty vague".
Mr Coates is concerned swimmers may lose any medals they win because of
But Talbot says suits have been approved.
"Australian Swimming did receive from FINA probably two months ago now a
letter saying that the suits were quite legal and that swimmers could use
them," he said.
"That's all really as far as I'm concerned; they're a goer."
