Olympics Ski Team Suit-3 [Duplicate]

A rack of recent-year ski racing suit prototypes is displayed at Spyder Active Sports Inc., including, front center, 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)
