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 2019 will take place in Prague, Czech Republic on July 7th and welcomes more than 40 National Federations along with Race Organizers, Track Officials, IBSF Representatives and Guests.
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.
Welcome to "the pit". 💪🏻 . Sounds like a great name for a gym, but don't be fooled this building got it's name from it's former use as the farm "silage pit" when we still had cows (silage is a winter grass based feed). After my parents sold the herd, they covered it and now use it as a storage shed. The concrete is a little broken and uneven from years of housing fermenting (therefore acidic) grass but it was the only 40m stretch of ground I could find that wasn't covered by snow and ice and it keeps me out of the cold, winter wind. Training these days looks a little different but in a way it's fun adjusting and adapting and being creative with not having a gym or running track. #farmfit #onthefarm #prariegirl #thepit #pitworkouts #getcreative #homegym #homefitness #athletelife #stayathome #socialdistancing #bobsleighathlete #teamcanada

Been working hard on further my education recently, so as exciting as me sitting in front of my computer for 60 hours sounds... enjoy some of the hardest hitting lifts this spring. . .2 bands unknown weights, comment below if you do. .One 2x4 .workout included: single arm shoulder raises, push ups, shoulder stability, nailz press, overhead press, curls and some other cool stuff I've been taught in sports med but dont know the names.
@maddoxcurt and his pup, Karl, aren’t letting #qurantinelife stop them from maximizing their fitness. Ok, so maybe Karl is just along for the ride. 🐶 Curt proves that you can use anything in your household to replace the weights while staying home. #dogsofinstagram .

How quick the world changed in just ONE month... A month ago we (a bunch of 60 skeleton athletes from all over the world) were still racing at World Champs in front of hundreds of people. Now a month later the world is quarantained & the upcoming summer, maybe even winter, remains a mystery. Let this be a reminder to enjoy each day you get to do what you love and keep a flexible mind always 🤙🏻 nothing is certain but possibilities are endless. Stay safe everybody 😘 📸@rekords #lilbelgian #livinglifeheadfirst #ibsfsliding

Today was supposed to be the official end to our season with Canadian Champs. With everything that’s been going on it was cut short. This season I was out to prove to myself wrong. That I do still have what it takes and that I can still compete with the best of them. There were ups and downs but everything was trending in the right direction. I finished World Champs in 8th place including pb start times and downtimes with a tweaked quad from run 3. Finally, a photo at the finish where I’m smiling :) Thank you for all the love and support! You guys have helped me through this season more than you know!! @sleemanbeer @bwalkcommunity @heninger_toyota @purevitalabs @trotterandmorton @msaloncalgary @purenorthhealth #crescentpointenergy @karbonsports @qwixskinz @calgarystampede @classroomchampions @fastandfemale 📸 @ibsfsliding @rekords

Staying home doesn’t mean progress stops. There are still personal records to break, even if no one can see when they are broken. Keep pushing. . . #theonlywayisthrough #staystrong #unitedasone . . @hammerstrengthofficial @underarmour . 📷 by the talented @reedjamesk.
VULNERABILITY (noun): the quality or state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally. . "What if it doesn't work out?" . "What if I get hurt?" . . In so many ways vulnerability sucks. It's uncomfortable and awkward and at times downright scary. We are not in control but we do our best with what we can. . As an athlete, risk is not new to me, and unknowns, uncercertianity and feeling uncomfortable, are not a novelty in my life. I am asked to sacrifice and invest and be "all in". But there are no guarantees. I focus on the things I can control and do what I can. Yet ironically, every action, every investment, every sacrifice, all the time and money I pour into this pursuit to bring me closer to “the goal”, simultaneously makes failure more costly both literally and figuratively. Sometimes, it feels too risky, too vulnerable, too scary, too much.. . But then I am reminded that there is beauty and opportunity hidden in the vulnerability of fully investing and dedicating myself in the presence of things beyond my control. And through my faith, I have found peace beyond understanding in the midst of insecurity. . ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Whether it's circumstances beyond your control or choosing to jump head first into opportunity, uncertainty is uncertainty, and fear is fear. It is normal for these things to go hand in hand. And the good news is, if you are feeling afraid, you are not alone! If you need to, reach out, talk about it, work through those fears and uncertainties with someone. And in doing so I hope you find peace and choose vulnerability. . . *** TO READ MORE be sure to sign up for my newsletter by messaging me your email and I'll add you to the list! . . . 📷 @davehollandpics #vulnerability #getvulnerable #uncertainty #deathtocomfortzones #scarystuff #takeachance #risktaker #dreamchaser #thehappynow #letsbehonest #realtalk #musings #foodforthought #covid19 #teamcanada #newsletter #update #bobsleighbullitin
