The biggest obstacle to making the Olympics for many athletes in bobsled and skeleton is funding. It is particularly difficult for athletes of small nations, such as Israel. Competing in the Olympics becomes contingent on the ability to afford the sizable costs the sport requires. This is why I will need sponsor support!
Training Program and Expenses
Over the next three years, I will be training to represent Israel in the 2022 Olympics as a skeleton athlete.
Leading up to the Olympics, I will spend 2-4 weeks training and racing in locations such as Lake Placid, NY; Park City, UT; Calgary, CN; Whistler, CN; and Germany.
My season expenses include:
- Sled | $6,000-$10,000
- Car Rentals | $7,000
- Ice Time | $6,000
- Flights | $5,500
- Lodging Accommodations | $5,000
- Baggage Fees | $4,000
- Sprint and Weightlifting Coaching | $4,000
- Speedsuit | $850
- Shoes | $330
The average season (Sept.-Apr.) will cost approximately $45,000.
