Ski Team Suit Olympics-3 [Duplicate]

Employees at Spyder Active Sports Inc. walk in a hallway near a rack of recent-year ski racing suit prototypes, including, front center, that for the downhill racing suit 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 Spyder production art manager Matt 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)
