WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Maryland based companies Under Armour and Locked Martin teamed up to outfit the U.S. Olympic Speed Skating athletes with the world’s fastest suits.

The suits are called the ‘Mach 39’ and were designed with computer modeling – with information gathered from high-speed cameras which captured Olympians’ movements and positions as they raced around their training facility in Utah – and hours and hours of wind tunnel testing.
