Really enjoying/intrigued by Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinsky leveling their Hunger Games aesthetics up, and their warm, well spoken, and witty analysis for this Olympics. Especially so in light of seeing the @hbo Real Sports w/ Bryant Gumbel @brygumb scathing exposé on the United States Olympic Committee @unitedstatesolympics distribution of USA Olympic funds generated, and the severe lack of funds that the majority of US Olympic athletes receive. It's well worth watching, but here's the thrust of it for those that won't get to but might like to know ~ While the USOC is sitting on nearly $600 million in cash, the average US athlete receives a pittance of support for their 4 years of Olympic training - usually health insurance and possibly up to $3k/yr. This, like our health care system, is a novel phenomenon among developed countries - all others fully support their Olympic athletes to actually be full time athletes, as one would expect. US athletes often work jobs, on top of full time training, and still go deep into debt to afford the expenses that training and traveling for qualifying for the Games incurs. Many live near poverty level, and have to beg for money via GoFundMe to help make their aspirations reality - even athletes that are previous medal winners live like that. The Olympics generates billions and billions in revenue for the USOC, of course, and the USOC then gets to hold up the medal winners as trophies, regardless of the level of support they provided, or didn't provide, to help make that medal win possible. This is Lincoln Heath, reporting from East Portland, back to you internet. #dirt #usa #usoc #olympics #pyeongchang2018 #hun#hungergamesisntjustamovie #hungergames

▪️NUTRITION▪️ Love this infographic and short article. ‘Nutrition at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics: Did you know that Team USA shipped to South Korea 85 pallets’ worth of food and equipment — weighing hundreds of pounds — so athletes had exactly what they need?! A big challenge for sports nutritionists who work with athletes is making sure they have enough energy to compete in their particular event. However, different sports have different energy needs, thus, the meal plans that we give to one of our athletes, will not be similar to another one. We always seek to personalize and optimize nutrition according to the individual we are working with. This figure (source: Vox) demonstrates how many calories different winter Olympics athletes eat per day.’ Photo Credit: VOX Text Credit: EM-SportScience #veryveragoandgrow #kellyanndobson #nutrition #vox #nannameyer #susieparkersimmons #USOC #sport #athletes #energy #usolympiccommittee #winterolympics2018 @veryverago_grow @KellyDobson82

4 years ago, 2 months premature... One Olympic sized gift, "born" at the Sochi Olympics in Russia for my nephew Zeke from the skeleton (a sport Uncle Dan has some experience and loves) bronze medalist, fellow Wisconsinite and currently competing in the skeleton in Korea on tv now!! Matt Antoine @mattanddixie (who overnighted this from the Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Spring) . Matt won his medal the same day my little nephew Ezekiel was born 2 months premature, Feb. 15th, 2014. One great lifetime memory made for two. Above and beyond Matt. This is why we love our fellow Wisconsinites and the Olympics. Slide Matt slide! #DreamBig #olympics, #skeleton #USOC, #sochi #USBSF #TeamUSA #MattAntoine #Kor#KoreaGames #Korea

I guess you could say I’m getting into the @olympics this year. A bit offended I wasn’t selected for @teamusa since my body is shaped like a bobsled. Maybe @tokyo2020 will play more to my strengths of sleeping and sock hunting. 🦀🐶🛷 #olympics #bassetbobsled #pyeonghound #coolrunnings #bas#bassethoundnts #bassethound #dog #puppiesofinstagram #instapuppy #bassethoundsofinstagram #usoc #bobsled #bassethoundpuppy #babybasset #bassetworld_feature #goforthegold

The Winter games reminds me of the time I had the honor to train with members of the USOC Skeleton team and enjoy a few skeleton runs down the Olympic Bobsled/Skeleton track in Park City, Utah. Going 60 mph (the medalists hit over 80 mph) was such an enjoyable rush, when I wasn't crashing, yes that photo is included. Better yet I made a few lifelong friends with whom I carbed up with local brews both during and after The Sundance Film Festival. #WinterGames #skeleton #olympicskeleton #USOC #ParkCityUtah #sundancefilmfestival

The humidity is already thicka than a snicka yet @regaswoods chooses to mask it up. We had a very good training session.

We're in the lab daily trying to figure out the perfect alignment. My experience with @regaswoods has proved that prosthetics is an imperfect science. I wish there was a way to bridge the gap between athlete, prosthetist and coach. You can not out coach a misaligned prosthetic. Yet that's the nature of the beast and our daily struggle.

When I met him, he heavily favored his sound side. We were introduced by Never-Say-Never organization. In the few short days he was in town, #tmspeedfitness help build his confidence in his mobility. He didn't fully trust the prosthetic enough to walk without swing the prosthetic. The drill he's doing forced him to engage hip flexors and core. If only for a little while he felt what its like to push off the toe of the prosthetic. Movement is a beautiful thing that we all should strive to enjoy!
