    Could it be that the suits simply needed a breaking in period before maiden voyage at Olympic competition?

    Let's just say it the suits have very little to do with their poor performance. If you look at the split times of the medalist their times in the 1st 200M are worse than the two Americans. They just stepped it up and went for the gold.

    American skaters quit blaming a suit. Be more like American skiers whom admit they choked, I am speaking Ted L here.

    Go USA!!! Skate faster others are, it is about today not what you did last week, month or year.

    Should have had Nike design the suit. Those guys know what they're doing.
