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.

If 8-year-old Tiago Cusano decides he doesn't want drive bobsleds when he grows up, he can probably play in the major leagues with his throwing arm. He was flinging snowballs every chance he got when we hosted him and his family in Lake Placid, N.Y. this past weekend. Luckily, our athletes were fast enough to dodge the cannonballs he was chucking. Tiago is from Miami Springs, Florida. He fell in love with the sport of bobsled while watching the 2018 Winter Olympics during a hospital stay. He'd never even seen snow before this weekend. Thanks to @makeawishamerica , his dream to see snow and ride in a bobsled came true, and we had the honor of being a part of making it happen. Tiago, his parents, @kevin_cusano and Elena, and his sister, Gianna, are now forever a part of our sliding community!
Live with intention ; Greatness is not an accident . ••• . It's the behind the scenes work - the grind ; the detials - that enable us to shine when the pressure is on and the clock is ticking. In that moment, we can trust that we are ready and able to do our best becuase of the work; the blood, sweat and tears we put in at the gym and on the track, with our strength coaches, push coaches, mental performance coaches and physiotherapists. It's how we rest and how we refuel our body. It's how we respect, encourage and challenge one another to be better day in and day out. Greatness is not an accident. It's a choice. . . . #greatness #choosebetter #pushyourself #thegrind #shine #bloodsweartears #teamwork #fitgirls #yycfit #teamcanada #stronglikeagirl #strongnotskinny #inspiration #gyminspiration
It’s just you on your sled against the clock. Aggression, power, then a dance, turn by turn. At the finish, the solitude ends as teammates embrace and celebrate. This is #skeleton. Images from @lakeplacidolympicsites by @mollychoma. Congrats again to @kendallorraine for breaking a two year medal drought by capturing 🥉. 👊🏻 Kudos to @qwixskinz for the speedy suits.
Here’s a look back at our #winning women’s #bobsled weekend with images from the incredibly talented @mollychoma. @elanameyerstaylor and @lake.likewater claimed 🥇, @reinbolt_usa and @davisjj_ finished 5th, while @vogt4nic and @brishaabri finished 11th. 👏🏻 @underarmourwomen @kampgroundsofamerica
Work on executing the basics to a high level and the rest will follow.

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 🍾
