Do wetsuits help the Florida Triathlete?

In the early 1990’s, the use of the wetsuit emerged as a source of controversy in the sport of triathlon. Originally, the wetsuit was introduced to our sport as a safety tool to help the triathlete survive cold waters and prevent hypothermia during a frigid swimming portion of the race.

Bike and Ride Safe
