Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank may have come off fretful when his company’s high-tech suits were blamed by some for the lackluster performance of the U.S. speedskating team at Sochi, but he really shouldn’t have sweated it. Besides inking a new contract with U.S. speedskating that lasts until 2022, he was recently ranked 731st in the world in having-nothing-to-worry-about. That is to say, according to Forbes, he is currently the 731st wealthiest person in the world.
That’s a net worth of $2.4 billion, twice what he was worth 12 months ago. So all in all, um, he had a pretty good year. In case you enjoy trying to grasp how rich the really, really rich really are: if Plank’s net worth rose by $1.2 billion last year, that averages out to around $3.3 million every day!
Let’s say you made $137,000 per hour and could work 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Well, you too could increase your wealth by $1.2 billion — as long as you didn’t have to waste any money on food and stuff.
