We should also recognize USA Swimming's progressiveness. Their rules to allow branding on the "front" of swim caps is a major boost for an athlete's ability to get more revenue from their sponsor. Kudos to them. Hopefully the IOC follows suit. Through the strong support of their sponsors and the swim community, these athletes are really able to reach their full potential.
Please give a shout out to your favorite athlete and the swim apparel brand that supported them!
