The biggest obstacle to making the Olympics for many athletes in 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 two years, I will be training to represent Israel in the 2022 Olympics as a skeleton athlete.
The total cost of my 2019/2020 season was $43,671.80.
Here are examples of a few of my larger expenses, all of which I expect to incur next season as well:
- Equipment | $8,399.00
- Car Rentals | $3,194.75
- Ice Time | $2,785.25
- Sliding Coaching | $1,109.89
- Flights | $4,806.03
- Lodging | $4,407.77
- Baggage Fees | $1,919.21
- Sprint and Weightlifting Coaching | $4,885
- Speedsuits | $1300
- Recovery | $969.74
I expect each of the next two seasons to cost just as much as last season. Thanks to sponsor support along with the legal and real estate work I performed during the offseason, I was just able to afford to represent Israel in a manner that allowed me to thrive during the past season. I need your help to do the same over the next two!
