Last week NBC Olympics was kind enough to give a visual history of leotards of Olympics past. As tends to be the case, NBC Olympics and I have differing views on Olympic spandex.
Los Angeles, 1984
In other news, while trying to figure out what Olympics the Athens leotard came from, I stumbled across this site, which is similar to my own yet focusing SOLELY on leotards. Sadly it seems it has not been updated since 2009 (has anyone used LiveJournal since then?).
Lastly I leave you with future US Olympic hopeful, Suri Cruise, and a link to one of my favorite blogs.
