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.
Our athletes made some energy balls using #MonsterCookie @fokkennuts peanut butter, and the results were 😋! Get the recipe from the video and toss these together for your next workout. Visit fokkennuts.com to see all of the flavors offered! Thanks to @nicolebrungardt for the time lapse video! #peanutbutter #usabssponsor #fokkennuts
Next to air, water is the most important physiological need for the human body. Luckily, @mananalu.water takes hydration just as seriously as we do. 🌊 Mananalu Water sent the team cases of canned water for our athletes to use during team trials so they could worry less about bringing essentials, like water, to the track, and focus more on training and racing.
Today’s races were fierce (and so is @reedjamesk’s photography)! @elanameyerstaylor and Lake Kwaza tied @reinbolt_usa and @ajalevans for today’s two-woman #bobsled national team trials win in Lake Placid. @codiebascue13 and @carlovaldes_usa were victorious in the two-man #bobsled race. We can’t wait to see what these athletes throw down tomorrow in women’s #monobob and four-man bobsled! #letsdothis #nationalteam #racetowin

🚨Imposter Syndrome🚨 What is it? Is it even a thing? Syndrome? Complex? Insecurity? Do I have it? Is it normal? How do so overcome it? Imposter Syndrome is loosely defined w/ different interpretations. It's said to be doubting your abilities and feeling like a fraud. It disproportionately affects high-achieving people, who find it difficult to accept their accomplishments. Many question whether they're deserving of accolades 🤔 Basically attributing YOUR success to external factors and comparing to others as a level of standard you must meet to be considered successful and worthy. ⚠️Body disforia (Sis you beautiful your body is a machine. Your scars, stretch marks, surgeries, discoloration is all part of who you are & it's 🔥💖) ⚠️Comparison (there's only one YOU and one THEM, being different is a flex 💪🏾) ⚠️Perfectionism (be boldly imperfect, that's 💯 beauty) ⚠️Confidence ('fake it till you make it's used to be a theme until I realized how exhausting that s#@t is and mentally unhealthy. I rather 'speak it into existence') ⚠️Self doubt (it is okay to question things, be unsure but NEVER devalue your worth) You don't need to be 'fixed,' but rather we need to create an environment that fosters a variety of leadership styles and in which diverse racial, ethnic, and gender identities are seen as just as professional as the current model #representationmatters I have personally found myself, especially as a black female entrepreneur, looking at trends and trying to mimic them fraudulently... Am I an imposter? Do I suffer from Imposter syndrome? Are we throwing this term around too loosely? At the end of the day embrace the fear, it's okay to self doubt (you aren't alone) but don't let that overcome you to try & be something you aren't! Authenticity ------------------- Conformity Know your WHY! Speak your TRUTH... authentically IMPERFECT action is better than no action Be YOU above all and let those who align gravitate to that... that is true CONNECTION with your loved ones, in your relationships, in your network, with your peers and your ideal audience! #impostersyndrome #imme #beyou #confidence #bold #imperfectlyperfect #authenticity #success
Drinking water at high altitude is so important. When your body is working harder, and you are breathing harder, your body will use up more water. @mananalu.water provided our athletes with pallets of canned water to keep them hydrated while racing in Park City, and additional pallets of water in Lake Placid that our staff wrote welcome messages on for the athletes entering quarantine for stop two of team trials. Be kind to your body by drinking plenty of water, and kind to the environment by drinking from a can versus a plastic bottle. #Bottomsup
Feminism is not about making women stronger... We are already strong AF! 💪🏾💪🏾 Women empowerment is about changing the way the 🌏 perceives us, most importantly, the way we perceive ourselves and harness that strength. A woman only needs to be 2 things... what and who she wants! 💯 👏🏾 I am grateful to be a woman, a black mixed woman, a powerful athletic woman, a strong and independent woman, a passionate and vulnerable woman. The ability to pursue being my unapologetic self was instilled in me by the women before me, surrounding me and inspiring me. I value, respect and idolize myself 👸🏾 because the groundwork to walk proudly as I am for all that I am was presented to me in such a way! Let's normalize that, let's be proud of that, let's OWN it! Continue to use our voices boldly, be courageous and confident. Harness our authentic power. Climb to the highest top, standing with our chest out and proud (without saying sorry or excuse me). To ALL Women: You are INCREDIBLE You are BEAUTIFUL You are POWERFUL You are ONE of a kind ⭐ I see you, I hear you, I walk with you... #happyinternationalwomensday . . . #women #strong #ownit #independent #passion #love #self #girl #climb #powerful #confident #vulnerable #authentic #community #empower #mindset #strong #beyourself #unapolgetic #womensday #womenshistory #oneofakind #bold #voice

Congratulations to our newly named USA Skeleton National Champions @afloskiah and @kateu11! 🏆 These two athletes not only won today’s team trials race, but had the fastest combined time over two days to earn the 2021 crown. That’s a wrap for Park City! Onto Lake Placid to continue the team selection series. 📷 by the ultra amazing @mollychoma @underarmour @bmwusa
It was another awesome morning of intense racing this morning! @bobteamchurch claimed four-man #bobsled #gold today with @jwilliamsonusa, @charlievolker and @boone_saw! @elanameyerstaylor completed a sweep of Park City races with her #monobob win. 🏆 📷 by the talented and beautiful @mollychoma
Track records, ties, and a whole lot more emotions to pile on to this morning's bobsled races. @thesavagemeglet and @kateu11 posted the same time in both heats (how does that even happen!?) to not only set a new Park City track record, but to tie for the win in the first women’s skeleton team trials race for the 2021-2022 season. @afloskiah also set a new track record en route to winning the men’s race. Get ready, tomorrow is going to be epic! 📷 @mollychoma #usaskeleton #teamtrials #recordbreaking
What.a.day. #USABobsled team trials for the 2021-2022 are officially underway. @teamdelduca and @blaine_mcconnell claimed a spectacular win under some trying circumstances, showing that this team is a family. @ajalevans is BACK and on 🔥, winning the two-woman race in @elanameyerstaylor’s sled. Emotions are up, down, all around. We also got to welcome back team 📷 @mollychoma! It’s been some time since she’s been able to capture the team, and we have missed her! She took these amazing photos from today.
Einige von euch fragen sich, wie der Tagesablauf beim Bobsport aussieht. Deswegen geb ich euch mal einen Einblick, wie ein Vorbereitungstag vor der Wettkampfsaison so getaktet sein kann: In der Früh geht es raus zum Frühstück. Danach geht’s direkt schon zur Bahnvorbereitung, Erwärmung und der ersten Bahneinheit. Anschließend wird das Krafttraining absolviert, bevor wir unsere Mittagspause genießen. 🍽😉 Nach der Mittagspause starten wir das zweite Bahntraining, bevor es in die interne Teambesprechung geht. Nach weiteren Trainingseinheiten und dem Abendessen geht es zum Schluss noch zur Physiotherapie, damit sich der Körper nach dem langen Tag wieder regenerieren kann. Wir haben 2018 bereits einmal ein Video veröffentlicht, in dem wir euch einen Tag mitnehmen. Schaut gerne mal bei YouTube unter „Martin Grothkopp und Bobteam Friedrich“. 📸 @rekords /@official_bsd ____________________________ #bsdsports #bsdteam #bobsleigh #bobfahren #bsd #bobsport #teamdeutschland #bobteam #behindthescenes #officialbsd #bob #teamsachsen #teamgermany #bobteamfriedrich #wintersport #rekordmeister #bobwm #networking #dresden #sportslover #bobsled #martingrothkopp #deranschieber #sporthilfe #safesports #5log
Save ⏱️ when creating content, stay consistent and build your brand ONLINE... So you're ready to expand your online presence and build your business... But posting and keeping up with social media trends while still working a 9-5 and starting up a business is a bit overwhelming, there's never enough time in the day/week 🤯 Here are some tips 👇🏾 1. Use a day (probably on the weekend or your day off) where you create all your content for the week. • try for 3-5 pieces of content • write down some themes and notes on what you want to talk about in your posts (the creative juices and motivation to create is not always there so when it is, write it down so you have it ready and available) 2. Mix up the content, make reels, video, slideshows and pictures (♻️ old pics or videos and edit them with words or a voice over as another option) 3. Save all the drafts and use a content scheduler to upload, make the comment section (don't forget hashtags) and schedule to post throughout the week automatically while you are at work and doing other things •there are free ones like hootsuite, cocalendar, and others you can use with an option to purchase an upgrade •schedule when your audience is active (if you are unsure play around with times) 4. Hop in on the post and engage with your audience, AUTHENTICALLY with 4+ words or more not just emojis 👍🏾 💁🏾♀️ Remember showing up authentically and consistently is the best way to optimally build your social media following, build your brands online presence and gain a genuine authentic target audience that engages.

I saw a few people posting a @ibsfsliding footage roundup of the season so I thought I’d join in whilst I’m experiencing the post season boredom! 😴 Gutted we couldn’t get the whole team into the winners box.
