U.S. SKI & SNOWBOARD STATEMENT

U.S. Ski & Snowboard is the national governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding in America.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard applauds the decision of the IOC today as it demonstrates a strong commitment to the importance of clean sport and the support of clean athletes.

On behalf of our athletes, we have a fundamental obligation to fight for fairness in sport, to advocate for the health and welfare of athletes and to protect the image of our sport.

Now we look to the International Ski Federation (FIS) to hold a FIS Council meeting to review the IOC’s decision and related evidence to consider its impact on the Russian Ski Association, its FIS committee members, officials and athletes.

CEO, U.S. Ski & Snowboard
