NEW YORK, N.Y. - The 2014 Sochi Olympics were expected to be a triumphant moment for the U.S. speedskating team — and the squad's sponsor, Under Armour.
It's been anything but that.
After a strong showing on the World Cup circuit, the team headed to the Games in skinsuits that Under Armour developed and called the fastest speedskating suits in the world.
Not only has no U.S. skater won any medals yet with seven speedskating events to go, but the sportswear company that made their high-tech Mach 39 suits is being blamed in part for the downfall.
