2014 Winter Olympics speed skating schedule: Women's 1500m headlines the day

Women's 1500m is the only speed skating event taking place on Sunday. Can The Netherlands keep up their run? Will the Americans' new suits make any difference? Here's the schedule.

SB Nation 2014 Winter Olympic Coverage

Only one speed skating event is scheduled for Sunday, but it's an important one for Team USA. The Women's 1500m long track event begins at 9 a.m. ET.

After a hugely-disappointing start to these games, the Americans ditched their new Under Armour suits, claiming that their athletes didn't have enough time to get used to them. They're going back to the suits worn during their dominating World Cup run in 2013. Will these suits finally help them get on the podium? We're about to find out, but it certainly didn't help Shani Davis, who had another underwhelming performance on Saturday and will leave Sochi without any medals. Brittany Bowe, Heather Richardson and Jilleanne Rookard will try to get Team USA back on track.

Meanwhile, The Netherlands simply cannot be stopped this year, racking up a combined 13 medals on the long track. Their success has been spearheaded by Ireen Wust, who won the gold in 300m and took a silver medal in 1000m.

Here's your schedule for Sunday.

9 a.m. ET - Women's 1500m
