If I took an action shot of an athlete during a competition, could there be any copyright issues with his uniform appearing in the picture?  I am mainly thinking of the design of the uniform and the manufacturer's logo.

trademarks are protected. Also, publicity rights are protected. "Fair use" can forgive some uses of your example, but you would probably loose an argument on many intellectual property issues if you tried to take such an image and commercially market it.
