MANY FACTORS DETERMINE SUCCESS: U.S. Speedskating Exec Dir Ted Morris indicated that “many factors determine Olympic success.” He said in a statement, “We are constantly making adjustments to improve results.” Haley added that many skaters “have posted personal-best sea-level heat times, split times or race times this week.” Baltimore-based advertising and marketing firm IMRE Dir of Sports Marketing Matt Saler said that he “didn’t believe questions raised over the suit would hurt the Under Armour brand.” Saler: “It’s not a type of clothing material that’s purchased by the mainstream consumer, and I don’t think most Olympics fans would associate Under Armour with the reason the athlete is not medaling” (Baltimore SUN, 2/14).
