Under Armour takes a hit in Sochi

|About: Under Armour, Inc. (UA)|By:, SA News Editor

Under Armour (UA -2.5%) isn't enjoying the Sochi Olympics as much as some with criticism getting leveled at it over the sluggish performance of U.S. speed skaters adorned with the company's suits for the sport.

Air vents in the suits designed to cool the athletes down are reported to be causing enough of a drag issue that quick-fix patches are being utilized.

Though the flap is unlikely to affect sales for Under Armour, it's one of the first chinks in the armor of the red-hot brand.
