U.S. speed skaters considered their new racing suits from Under Armour a “secret weapon” at the 2014 Olympics. But the team underperformed, failing to medal for the first time since 1984. Despite the outcome, U.S. Speed Skating maintained its deal with Under Armour.

It’s time to start counting medals. Saturday’s schedule of Olympic competition will feature the Winter Games’ first gold-medal events, including several speedskating finals, which Under Armour will be watching closely.

Also worth watching in South Korea are the the figure skating team event and the men’s snowboarding slopestyle final, which the United States won four years ago.
