For Swimmers, Facial Hair Can Be A Drag

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene. Facial hair can be such a drag. Just ask swimmers who decide not to shave everything off for speed. Beards can slow your time, but maybe no longer. The company Virgin Trains, which sponsors a race in England, has created a new product. It's called the Beard Cap. It's a Lycra swim cap with extra material that wraps up over your chin, cheeks and upper lip, covering beards and mustaches, fulfilling the Olympic motto, faster, higher, stronger, hairier. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
