Olympics Ski Team Suit-6 [Duplicate]

A downhill racing suit of the design to be worn by the U.S. Alpine ski team at the Winter Olympics in Sochi is displayed at Spyder Active Sports Inc. 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)
