Under Armour on Hot Seat for Olympic Speed-Skating Suits
Under Armour is fending off accusations by the U.S. speed-skating team that its new high-tech suits are at fault for the skaters’ disappointing performance in Sochi. The suits may have a design flaw that could be slowing down skaters, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing three people familiar with the U.S. team. The U.S. Speed Skating Federation said it would drop the controversial new suit and switch back to previous uniforms for the remainder of the Olympics, saying some athletes "lack confidence" in the uniforms. Both of the suits, new and old, are made by Under Armour.
