Ditching The New Under Armour Suit Didn't Help Speedskater Shani Davis

Under Armour's latest speedskating suits weren't working well with the U.S. team, so some skaters switched, including Shani Davis. The change didn't do much for him in the individual 1,500-meter race.


Davis won't have an individual medal from these Winter Olympics, placing seventh out of 34 skaters in his last attempt. He didn't publicly blame his poor performance on the new Under Armour suits, but the team made the change, and there wasn't much improvement. Overall, the Americans have underwhelmed in speedskating with no medals through half of the events. And Davis personally won't have anything to show for his time in Sochi.
