Whether it’s just a “mind game” or not, the U.S. speed skating team is ready to move back to the suits they wore during World Cup performances. They received approval from the IOC on Saturday.

The men will wear the World Cup suit in the 1,500 meters later on Saturday. They have yet to medal in six events thus far.
