By contrast, the skin on a shark - made up of millions of tiny, tooth-like structures called denticles - has a noticeable effect on the animal's speed.

London Summer Olympics. Professor George Lauder has found that the rough surface of shark skin helps reduce drag and increase thrust as the animal swims. Interestingly, the research also tested the high-tech swimsuits and found that their surface (supposedly designed to mimic shark skin) has no effect on swimming speed.

The effect on drag of a Speedo Fast‐skin suit compared to a conventional suit was studied in 13 subjects (6 males, 7 females) swimming at different velocities between and m•s ‐ active drag force was directly measured during front crawl swimming using a system of underwater push‐off pads instrumented with a force transducer (MAD system).

Speedo’s LZR Racer ‘fast suit’ made a splash when it was launched inand with good reason. Giving swimmers a second skin. to reduce drag and increase speed. It is known that swimming equipment (suit, cap and goggles) can affect the total resistance of a swimmer, and therefore impact the resulting swimming speed and race time.

Swimmers encounter frictional drag in water, just as cyclists and runners encounter frictional drag from the air pushing.

If you've been involved in swimming for any period of time, you know about the shaving tradition. This is where swimmer at big meets often shave virtually all available skin not covered by a bathing suit, with the exception of the eyebrows.
