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.

So excited for tomorrow's event 🙌🏼🙌🏼 #Repost @helpthehelpyeg • • • • • • Meet Melissa Lotholz! Team Canada Bobsleigh. One of our incredible keynote speakers: Growing up on a farm in rural Alberta, Melissa learned from an early age the joy of hard work and pushing her limits. Moving up through grade school she saw this principle transfer to the athletic arena where she competed for a variety of school and community teams. Following high school graduation, she focused on track and field for four years, competing both club and varsity while studying at the University of Alberta. It was during this time that a seed to try the sport of bobsleigh was planted, and in due time she moved to Calgary, Alberta to train with and try out for the national team. Melissa found quick success in the sport of bobsleigh. Competing on the World Cup circuit since 2014, Melissa has earned 2 Overall World Cup titles and 2 runner up titles, 2 World Championship medals and 17 World Cup medals. In 2016, Melissa made history as part of the first all women’s team to compete in the 4-man World Cup competition. In 2018 Melissa competed at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, where she finished 7th alongside teammate Christine DeBruin. Following the Olympic season, Melissa decided to push herself and grow in the sport by learning how to pilot a sled. This past season Melissa learned to drive while competing in the 2man and monobob events on the North American Cup circuit. Monobob is a new Olympic discipline for women debuting at the 2022 Olympics. At the end of the bobsleigh season Melissa hopped back on brakes to help push Team Canada to their best ever World Championship team result. A strong believer in growth and community, Melissa continues to give back, sharing her story of adversity and triumph, reflecting on the principles of taking risks, working faithfully, choosing to have perspective, and the strength of teamwork. She continues to challenge herself and her community everyday in working towards being their best self and growing physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. . . . 📷 @eye58photography #bobsleigh #bio #yegevents

Happy Juneteenth! ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 . #Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of #slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, the Union soldiers landed in Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. . Although the shackles may not be visible any longer please don't get that confused with absolute freedom. We still live daily with discrimination, persecution, death, being overworked without appropriate pay due or even denied civil liberties due to the color of our skin, the difference in our culture, our ties to the Motherland. Let this day be celebrated for progress but by all means we are #freeish NOT #free. Change is still needed across the world for all walks of life to live a truly free life to be who they were born to be! #staywoke . . . #slavary #freedom #emancipation #1865 #black #immigrants #brown #shackles #juneteenth #june19 #history #africanamerican #ushistory
What's your word? We asked our athletes this question to kick off our 2019 National Team Camp to create meaningful conversations and positive action. The athletes, coaches and staff stamped their individual words on a MyIntent bracelet. #serviceproject #livewithpurpose #findyourmeaning @supadupachick @nicolebrungardt @kai_kun24

Molcajete - Mexican Spanish traditional hot stone [among the world's oldest culinary tools] filled with cheese, sauce, grilled veggies and choice of protein 🤤🇲🇽🌶️ . It's amazing to indulge in other cultures and see how closely the overlap is between dishes, traditions, ideas, flavors yet are so very different and enlightening . . . #foodie #mexicana #spanish #molcajete #foodgasm #eat #yum #love #videooftheday #mesoamerican #aztec #mayan #flavor #culture #meal #breakbread #history
Life is all about balance and this week I’m taking my foot off the gas pedal and taking things a little slower during my deload week, it’s not a week of complete rest I’m doing more mobility and other light work. #teamireland #irishfitfam #ireland #irish #gym #mobilization #rest #fitfam #fitness #power #strengthandconditioning #crossfit #workout #strong #balance #deload #medballworkout #recovery #stability #hardwork #legday #fitspo #restandrelax #health #mobility #romwod
Working with @juncha over the years, building my right arm sleeve, has been such an honour. He’s one of the most down to earth humans I have ever met, so real and passionate. a dear friend throughout this process. Very wise and intelligent, but honest and humble. from the beginning it was comfortable and empowering to have Input while allowing him to do magic on my skin. We started with a portrait of my mom, which was the reason I waited years to begin this process with him specifically. He’s one of the best in the business and I didn’t want anyone else portraying her, as it needed to be perfect. His work is one of a kind. then we did a portrait of my dad, and a guardian angel. We also incorporated a horse for my sister and a key to represent my other sister. It’s a family sleeve, paying homage to the current and ones pasted on. We also incorporated a Golden Eagle to represent myself In the picture, as they are some of the most badass animals on the planet. My family is the most important thing in my life. I take them everywhere with me now, a daily reminder of who I am and where I come from. No matter what I face or where in the world I travel, I am never alone. Thanks @juncha for giving me the gift of my family in art form. 🙏🏻🔥♥️🥰
Доборе утро мирок 🐣 #love 💛
➡️➡️ apparently I'm my father's daughter 😂 Thanks dad for always giving me a reason to smile .. however goofy that smile may sometimes be.. 😁😆😊😀😄. . HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the dads!!

We have had a few deaths in the family this past week. It was amazing to see this 🌈 live after some sun showers beaming so brilliant (the this photo doesn't do it's beauty justice) the other evening. There were even other people across the Americas posting rainbows they had seen thousands of miles away. I'd like to think this was nature's way of celebrating our loved ones lives, their huge hearts, how much they are missed already and a release of their spiritual energy to the next adventure whatever that may be. . . . Take time today and always to squeeze your loved ones tight, send a text "I love you," let them know you think of them and are loved. It just takes a moment and means the 🌏! . . . #life #death #sunshowers #family #love #sky #rainbow #colors #nature #spirit #scenery #skyline #views #energy #celebration #photooftheday #iloveyou
Ich möchte euch heute mal einen kleinen Bericht über ein Nahrungsergänzungsmittel geben, welches mir vor über 1,5 Jahren zugetragen wurde. Es handelt sich um das Produkt Asta One® des jungen Start-Up’s @naturerocket . Eine Kapsel Asta One® enthält 4 mg natürliches Astaxanthin aus der Mikroalge Haematococcus Pluvalis, dem wertvollsten Antioxidans in der Natur. Dem Astaxanthin aus der Mikroalge werden wirklich sehr gute Effekte, nicht nur für Sportler, nachgesagt und mittlerweile auch mit Studien belegt. Als solches gilt die Reduzierung von oxidativem Stress durch das neutralisieren von freien Radikalen, die Erhöhung der Ausdauerfähigkeit, der Schutz der Zellen und DNA vor Zell- und Gewebeschäden, der Schutz vor Entzündungen, die Optimierung des Fettstoffwechsels, der Schutz der Haut und es sorgt für eine schnellere Regeneration nach anstrengenden Belastungen. Das klang alles nach einem Wundermittel und wenn ich es nicht an mir selber gespürt hätte, dann würde ich es einerseits schon lange nicht mehr nehmen und schon gar nicht heute davon berichten. Ich kann sagen, dass mein Immunsystem im Sommer wie im Winter extremen Belastungen ausgesetzt ist und ich seit der hochdosierten Einnahme (8-12 mg/Tag) weniger anfällig für Erkältungserkrankungen bin. Nach Nächten mit wenig Schlaf bin ich schneller wieder Fit und Produktiv und ich regeneriere nach extremen Belastungen einfach schneller. Ein zunächst witziger Effekt war, dass ich weniger bis gar keinen Sonnenbrand mehr bekomme. Für uns Hochleistungssportler ist neben der Wirkung die Qualität, die Reinheit sowie die Dopingunbedenklichkeit von höchster Bedeutung. Auch hier setzt Nature Rocket® die höchsten Standards und lässt das Produkt Asta One® nach den Kriterien der Kölner Liste testen. Also ich bin überzeugt und gespannt wie es bei euch ankommt! Wenn ihr Fragen habt, dann informiert euch auf der Homepage von @naturerocket https://www.nature-rocket.shop/ oder schreibt mir eine PN. Testet es einfach mal aus und mit dem Code: Martin-15 erhaltet Ihr 15 % Rabatt auf die Monatsration! #naturerocket #astafeeling #living [Werbung] Euer Martin
Happy Father’s Day to all you wonderful and responsible dads out there 💪🏾! This little princess makes me the happiest and Luckiest dad in the World 🌎 ❤️ 👸🏽.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. .
