Blame the suit? No, says Under Armour who extends its contract with U.S. Speedskating Association

Some blame the suit - the suit the U-S speedskating team wore at the Olympics in Sochi - for the reason the team did not win any medals.

But Friday, Under Armour announced it will extend its contract with the U.S. Speedskating Association. The renewal extends the partnership for eight years.

Some athletes thought the current suits were the reason the team did not pick up any medals but Under Armour says those claims are based just on speculation. Some athletes went back to their old suits for their events but they still failed to win any medals.

Under Armour has been designing suits for the national speedskating team since 2011. It also provides apparel for the U.S. bobsled and skeleton teams and the Canadian snowboarding team.
