Charging into November with Curtailed Anti-Doping Testing

Last week Matt Futterman of The New York Times wrote two stories of interest to readers of FasterSkier. One piece was titled “ Winter Sports Athletes Are Crisscrossing Europe for Races. Is That a Good Idea ?” Futterman advanced this story on Twitter with the following statement:  “ It’s a really strange moment for the Olympic winter sports schedule to begin.

The Devon Kershaw Show: See the Forest for the Trees – An Eye on FIS

Like so many organizations, FIS, the governing body for international skiing, is a slow-to-change entity. Doping reforms, for example, have evolved but at a yawn-worthy rate. So in rather atypical fashion, like a finger snap, FIS voted to oust its Secretary General, Sarah Lewis, on October 9th. Lewis had been considered a lifer at FIS. She’d been on staff for two decades. News on the “why” of her removal remains sparse. Yet it was an unexpected departure. Not so unexpected, the postpo...

Opportunity and Transformation with Greg Townsend of Ridge View Academy

Like most other states, a cross section of athletes racing in the Colorado High School circuit (CHSAA) looks relatively homogenous when it comes to ethnicity. The field is largely white. However, in stark contrast to skiers hailing from affluent mountain towns like Steamboat Springs, Aspen, and Vail, a team from Denver might catch your eye for adding some color. Most of the Ridge View Academy Rams, all male, are Black or Latino, and line up amidst athletes with NCAA or even Olympic aspirations ...
