Ski Team Suit Olympics [Duplicate]

Spyder Active Sports Inc., production art manager Matt Strackbein holds up a downhill racing suit of the design to be worn by the U.S. Alpine ski team at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, at Spyder headquarters in Boulder, Colo., Wednesday Jan. 22, 2014. According to Strackbein, the suits' colors are meant to represent the reflection of the U.S. flag on Chesapeake Bay following the bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. The bombardment witnessed by Francis Scott Key inspired the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner." (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
