Is the Wrestling Singlet in Trouble?


Great article on the wrestling singlet. Traditionally wrestling was nude – the modern wrestling singlet combines function and form to reveal an athletic competitor’s raw power. Thanks to singlets and stuff for the content and post.

Singlets and Stuff

2012 Team USA Media Summit

The singlet…the modern uniform and arguably the most recognizable aspect of amateur wrestling (folkstyle, freestyle, and greco-roman).  However, the sport may be getting a new look in the coming years, which may not include the iconic one-piece.

Ever since the IOC (International Olympic Committee) announced the removal of wrestling from the 2020 Olympics in February of last year, it sparked a wildfire of wrestlers, fans, and supporters from across the globe.  It also shook up the governing body of FILA ( Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées or International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles), who replaced their president and started to put forth proposals to help “modernize” the sport as well as make it more appealing to the masses.

Some proposed changes include modifications to the scoring system to award more aggressive wrestlers and prevent long boring matches prevailed by clinching.  A different mat color to appeal better to television viewers, is…

Lycra Tri Suits – Latest Design from O2 Fit


New 02 Tri Suit – $70.00 AUD online

The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.

Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).

O2 Compression makes this Black Men’s Trisuit and states that the benefits include:

o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.

The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.

Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.

They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.

Other benefits include:

  • Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
  • Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
  • Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
  • Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise

Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.

Does o2fit compression products have a UV rating?

Yes, all of our products have a UV rating of 50+.
