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.
Aaaand that's it. World Cup done. Finished 12th in the last race and at the European Championships. Could be better, could be worse. 9th in the overall worldcup, which is ok too. 😊✌ Looking forward to a couple of days at home before Worldchamps in Altenberg 🤩 #worldcup #done #9th #thankstotheteam #swecze #season1920 #slidingheadfirst

I wish I could explain your eyes, and how your touch gives me butterflies. How your laugh makes my heart skip a beat and how every time I am with you, I feel so complete. Happy Valentine’s Day to my Amazing Husband! 🥰 . . 📸: @sierrasolisphotography #marriedlife #soulmates #love #withyou #valentinesday
We are about 1 week away from World Championships. My team and I decided not to do the final World Cup stop this year, and stay to train in a holding camp environment. We are preparing for battle on one of the hardest tracks in the world, against some of the top competition in the world. Eyes on the prize. A lot went into getting here, many changes, so managing expectations as well as listening to my body is key. My lifting is not where is has been in the past, understandable considering I spent last year off of racing, but it’s still plenty strong. I’m working to prepare my body the only way I know how, making sure my mental game is sharp. my head is focused and I’m maximizing what I’ve got now. It’s about living in this moment and having no regrets. Performance is about making sure all the boxes are ticked so I can go out there and do what I do best. Keeping it simple, staying happy, having fun are key points at this stage in the game. All of which exists currently. Squats 120kg 3x3 (heavy and deep but with speed). Rear foot elevated single leg squats 60kg 4x2/2 Jumps and db quick step (10kg bells) superset between the squat exercises. . . #squats #girlswholift #strongwomen #preparation #athlete #bobsledding

This is the little girl I play sport for. This little girl with so much life ahead of her, who had no idea how sport would transform her life forever. This little girl who just wanted to be active and move. This little girl who was too shy to talk to anyone outside the context of sport. This little girl full of hopes and dreams that would later become realities. This is who I play for- the little girl I once was and all the little girls who dream. Happy National Girls and Women in Sports Day! @womenssportsfoundation #NGWSD #LeadHerForward #keepplaying
