New USAT ruling over wetsuit thickness

I think we all new it was coming... the USAT today announced that from the beginning of 2013 all wetsuits used in USAT-sanctioned events cannot exceed five millimeters in thickness (or you get a DQ).

Fear not oh stressed-out athletes - if you own a blueseventy wetsuit you are safe (and swimming faster for it). Our crystal ball has been working just fine - not one of our technical masterpieces are over 5mm thick in any area, so you can swim easy knowing you are wearing one of the most buoyant AND legal wetsuit on the market.
