Is it possible the skaters should have spent more time working on actually trying to train well enough to win rather than rely on a suit to provide the advantage? I don't think it's Under Amour's fault the team was a bust. They get their payback in the bad PR they receive for less than improved suit. However, I think the coaches and the athletes are to blame for not training better. OR, maybe the rest of the world is just better at speed skating.

Every soccer game I ever lost was because my shorts were too draggy.

Didn't like the new or old suits, the white patches of color near the crotch were distracting. Should get back to skating, cut out the fashion statements, whatever was intended, failed.
