Those new suits the swimmers are wearing at the Olympics are giving me fits. No, I’m not angry that so many records are being broken, but rather that I can’t figure out if I’m watching men or women compete.

Think I’m crazy? Ok, swim fan, try and identify the gender of each of these athletes. You can click on the picture to make it bigger, but I promise you it won’t help any. Answers after the jump.

1. MAN – Markus Rogan of Austria
2. WOMAN – Anne Poleska of Germany
3. WOMAN – Natalie Coughlin of the U.S.
4. WOMAN – Aurore Mongel of France
5. MAN – Thiago Pereira of Brazil
6. MAN – Aschwin Wildeboer Fber of Spain

    I was saying the exact same thing to my wife the other night!!! I walked in and she had the games on with a bunch of swimmers lined up and for the life of me I couldn’t tell if they were men or womens – she cracked up!!!

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one who is confused by these darn things!

    Dude, you took the words out of my mouth. I was watching swimming last weekend with friends and we were arguing about whether it was men or women in the pool.
