After a series of poor results at the Olympics, the US speedskating team will abandon the Under Armour suits that some team members believe have been hurting their performances, reports The Wall Street Journal. Now that they have permission to do so, the team will reportedly begin using another Under Armour suit, but one thats been more thoroughly tested: its the same suit that the team used during its strong fall season. The US speedskating team has only had the new suits since the New Year, and the model was said to be the fastest speedskating suit in the world. Though the team appears to be pointing fingers at the suit for their underwhelming performances, apparently not every team member believes its the suit thats to blame. The Journal reports that the speedskating team was split about whether they should revert to the older suit, but pressure from potential medal winners led them to them supporting the decision.
