Nike's Dimpled Tracksuits Helps Athletes Shave Off 0.23 Seconds. To Be Used In The Olympics

This summer's Olympics in London has a lot in store for Nike. They've cooked up their own secret weapon, and its a track suit dimpled like a golfball that will hlep athletes from United States, Germany, Russia to compete with the likes of Usain Bolt.
The Pro TurboSpeed, as Nike calls it, will presumably make athletes a tad bit faster so they can catch up to him. The suit is covered in hundreds of tiny dimples designed to reduce its aerodynamic drag, and after thousands of hours testing it in a wind tunnel, Nike claims that it can cut 100 meter dash times by as much as 0.23 seconds. That's incredible a lot.
The suits are designed to be as comfortable as possible so that they don't hinder performance and created with fabrics that are lighter than ever.
But what if Usain gets his hands on this. Just how will the rest be chasing him down? [Nike]
