FINA Bureau is expected to approve ban when it votes Tuesday: Swimming's governing body banned record-setting bodysuits Friday, a major step in limiting technology in the pool.
FINA has come under criticism for its failure to regulate the rapid advances in swimsuit technology that has led to 108 world records last year and nearly 30 so far this year.
The ban must be approved by the FINA Bureau on Tuesday — most observers view the vote as a formality — but it won't take effect until 2010. World records could be set at the world championships, which start Sunday in Rome, in suits that won't be legal next year.
