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.

Getting race ready for #AlbertaChampionships this weekend. With temperatures begin -20 Celsius for the past few weeks it has definitely tested me in coaching... It's much different than being active in this cold as an athlete. . . . After testing some push technique, driving lines and equipment, @surfvictorian seems to be ready to put some solid competive runs together on Sunday. Possible the last time teaching on the Calgary track as it has been announced it will be closing after this season. 😪 . . . Excited to see the #GoaldenTheory athletes show there stuff against each other and the pros! . . . #coach #coaching #Coachlife #skeleton #sliding #winter #sports #development #nextgeneration #future #race #compete #support #push #fast #Calgary #Winsport #Alberta
Elena Nikitina and Jacqueline Lölling win the IBSF #BMWworldcup in #LakePlacid at Lake Placid Olympic Sports Complex · Kendall Wesenberg takes third place, giving the US team the first podium of the winter · Best result for Youth Olympic Champion Ashleigh Pittaway!
What an awesome way to start the Lake Placid World Cup! @kendallorraine set the pace for Team USA by earning 🥉 in the women’s skeleton race this morning. It’s been two years since USA Skeleton has medaled in a World Cup race. The most recent medal performance before today was in January 2017, when Wesenberg claimed silver in St. Moritz, Switzerland. 💪
Three happy winners and a tie for gold !!! Who could ask for a better start of the North America tour?

#OneYearAgo I stood on this start line. As I walked towards it, I felt a chaotic crowd rumble the ground. I found my parents, girlfriend and best friends in the crowd for one last time, before I flipped my helmet down and made my Olympic debut. #PyeongChang2018 #TeamCanada @teamcanada @ibsfsliding
