IBSF | International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation
Update by the IOC : “Oswald Commission” is making progress
Recently the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reached out to its stakeholders to update them on the latest developments of the “Oswald Commission”. In a letter sent by the Chair of the IOC´s “Oswald Commission” Denis Oswald to the IOC Athletes’ Commission Chair Angela Ruggiero, a detailed update was given about the work´s progress ( https://hub.olympic.org/news/ioc-disciplinary-commission-summarises-latest-progress).
The “Oswald Commission” was tasked by the IOC to look into the alleged doping violations by Russian athletes and their entourage at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014.
In a letter sent to the IOC Members and the International Federation Presidents, IOC President Thomas Bach highlights the complexity of the cases and particularly as the “Commission is not dealing with “regular” cases based on an Adverse Analytical Findings (AAFs)” .
The IBSF wants to underline the commission´s position that since the McLaren report was provided, the parties concerned have undertaken all necessary steps to review the documents provided and see if there is any Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) committed.
The IBSF also reiterates its position that the protection of the clean athletes and the fight against doping with zero tolerance is a top priority and will be fully implemented.
The IBSF Congress 2017 will take place in Salt Lake City, USA on June 28th and welcomes around 40 National Federations along with Race Organizers, Track Officials, IBSF Representatives and Guests.
Hope to visit the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. My skeleton race suit was sent there after last year's Games, but to see this picture is an honor! When people see this, I want them to be reminded of my story of Hope! #HopeOfABillion @olympic @ibsfsliding @doterra @olympicmuseum @olympicchannel

5 years ago today I had the honor of sharing an Olympic medal podium with these amazing women in Sochi. Happy Medal Anniversary to @kailliehumphries @heathermoyse 🥇, @lauryncwilliams 🥈, and @jamiegreubel @ajalevans 🥉. Happy Anniversary also to all the people who helped make this happen- specifically @fingermash @cklachan and of course @nictaylorusa . Grateful to share a bond with these women for life! @usabs @teamusa @ibsfsliding @olympics
After hard work during 9 World Cups, it’s time to have some fun! As we know St. Moritz is a place where a lot of winter sports have been born so we hope this is the beginning of something big that shall be called "Para Speed Wheeling"! We definitely will be back next year stronger and better prepared! But for now - have good rest boys and girls till the Para Sport World Championships in Lake Placid!
Держитесь подальше от тех, кто постоянно ноет, жалуется и убеждает всех в том, как ему тяжело. Это однозначно заразный подход к жизни. Рано или поздно вы даже не заметите как тоже начали ныть и жаловаться. Окружите себя сильными, самоуверенными, целеустремленными личностями — это тоже рано или поздно заразит вас. 📖
So thankful for these 4 ❤👨👩👧👧 . ••• . Family. . In a world that is forever changing, through highs and lows, new things and old, our family stands firm and constant. Like the branches of a tree, life may take us in our own unique direction, but we are united together, tied at our roots; we are one. Family is like a stong backbone or firm foundation that provides support, encouragement and love on which we build our dreams and lives. They are a safety net, our personal cheerleader, a helping hand, and a friendly smile. They know us at our best and they love us at our worst. . I am so thankful for my family and their constant support. I am thankful for the many experiences and the little moments that we share. . What is family to you? . . . #family #familyday #iloveyou #mycrew

Allez Les Bleus!! It would not surprise us if they are still celebrating the first World Cup medal in 2-man bobsleigh for France since the World Championships 1999!! What a way to get to know a new track in only a few days time! Must be their favorite from now on! Congratulations Romain Heinrich and Dorian Hauterville 🍾

Q: what keeps you motivated? A: loosing a race by 1/100th of a second. ( fun fact: it takes 3/10ths to blink your eyes. 1/100th is the width of a hair) . . I work as hard as I do because I know what it feels like to wish I had done more to change the outcome. Having to live with my thoughts of where I could have made that time up in the days, weeks, months, years beforehand. The fear of regretting not giving 100% during preparation, knowing I could have done more. Living in “what if’s” afterwards scares me. No thank you! I stay motivated by the “no stone unturned” philosophy Giving my all is more motivating knowing I am doing my best version. I can approach each race, challenge, obstacle with a clear mind and solid heart knowing I worked my ass off and there is no reason I can’t achieve my goals. I plan and prepare to have no regrets. In that preparation I find motivation.
Back in Calgary for the World cup week! . ••• . For the first time in 4 years Calgary is hosting the best of the best in bobsleigh and skeleton. The @ibsfsliding World Cup is the last stop on the World cup tour before the World Championship showdown in Whistler, BC! Sadly, it might also be the last ever competition on the infamous 1988 Olympic track as currently renovation plans have been scraped until further notice due to lack of funding. . Be sure to come catch the action: . Saturday, Feb 23: 9am womens skeleton race 12:30 women's & men's 2man bob . Sunday, Feb 24: 8:30 mens skeleton 1:30 4man bob . . . #yyc #yycevents #yycnow #winterfun #yycwinter #bobsleigh #skeleton #worldcup #bestofthebest #race #competition #gotime #TeamCanada
People often ask me how I stay motivated.... the answer is 1/100th of a second. (It happened 1 time, and It was the worst feeling. Never again.) Loosing a race by the width of a hair is hard. Thinking (dwelling, stirring focusing) about all the details I could have done different in the days, weeks, months, years leading up to that race to get a different result and find that time. Loosing by a fraction of a second and regretting anything, that’s what drives me to work my ass off everyday. To be the best version of myself. My dreams are bigger than any excuse I can give myself..... being my best self so I can know at the end of a race, regardless of the result, I did everything I could. his is how I stay motivated. Challenges force me to sacrifice and rise up. Doesn’t matter if I fail, as long as I did my best and learned. Loosing a race knowing i could have done more, that kills me. When in doubt workout. Because somehow crushing my body is the most relaxing part of my day. . . #homeworkouts #noexcuses #fitness #health #whatmovesme #heretocreate

A win 🥇more special than any other here in Lake Placid in that I got to share it with my nieces and nephew. It’s a blessing to be able to share with them what I do.

Premiéru na 🇺🇸 dráze v Lake Placid máme za sebou. Byl to trochu boj o přežití, ale nakonec jsem spoko, že to dopadlo tak jak to dopadlo. Co si budem.. mohlo to dopadnout i hůř!😁 Naučit se novou dráhu během 14 jízd a odzávodit dvojboby i čtyřboby byl solidní oříšek. Díky hoši @kuba_nosku @dominiksuchy13 @honza_sindelar , že jsme to zvládli, a jedeme dál 🇨🇦 📸 @rekords @ibsfsliding

One year ago today. You sometimes have to risk failure in order to taste success, and being an athlete means you do it when everyone is watching. On this day I was lucky enough to look failure in the eye and taste success on the world's biggest stage with one of my best friends. For that I'll be eternally thankful 🥉🇬🇧 . . 📷 Press Association . . #olympicgames #pyeongchang #pyeongchang2018 #teamgb #oneteamgb #oneyearon #anniversary #olympics #medal #success #failure #dreams #onceinalifetime #friendship #pressure #moment #sport #wintersport #womeninsport #thankful #grateful #instapic #instadaily #dreambig #workhard
