FN Pick: Battered Armour

FN Pick: Battered Armour
Champion skater Shani Davis fell short of expectations in Sochi, Russia.

As the Winter Olympics wound down last week, the blame game began heating up. American speed skaters, who historically make a strong showing, slipped behind the pack this year, and Baltimore-based Under Armour became the target. Top skaters said the company’s aerodynamic suits slowed them down (despite the fact that many later raced in their old UA suits and still lost). By midweek, the U.S. Olympic Committee said it would investigate why athletes performed so poorly.
