Calgary (RWH): Bobsleigh and skeleton athletes from 12 countries (AUS, BRA, CHN, CRO, IRE, ITA, JAM, JPN, LUX, NED, ROU, and TPE) are currently attending the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation’s (IBSF) first pre-season training camps at the Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
The pre-season training camp is part of the IBSF’s Emerging Nations Support Package for bobsleigh and skeleton, which is open to countries without their own ice track and with fewer than three pilots in at least three IBSF disciplines. The training camps are held in North America and Europe. Further camps are scheduled in Whistler (CAN) and Lillehammer (NOR) prior to the start of November. These tracks will then also offer training camps for Paralympic athletes.
With this programme, the IBSF offers over 30 of its member countries important support in pilot and push athlete training. The federation covers the costs for travel, accommodation and training, and also provides access to its own experienced coaches. ©RWH2017
