Lausanne (RWH) The elections to the upcoming IBSF Athletes Advisory Committee are underway until 16 January at all IBSF race series. The former bobsleigh pilot Christina Hengster from Austria, and the former skeleton athlete Anja Selbach (GER) will be available for selection for the committee chair.
