Olympic swimmers broke 25 world records at Beijing's Water Cube over the course of the nine-day swimming program.

During the ensuing 32 years, the sport has had a steady stream of technical advances ?better training tools like short fins, ergonomically-designed hand paddles, and the full body suit designs that debuted in Sydney in 2000. All of these things were helpful, of course, but there's been nothing as seismic as the advent of goggles.
