U.S. Speedskating "finally has found a heavyweight, cash-paying sponsor," after agreeing to a five-year, $1.2M sponsorship deal with IL-based Ameritech, according to Charles Gardner of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.

The deal is with Ameritech and Security Link, a division of Ameritech (Charles Gardner, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 1/30).
