Behind the Scenes
Talk-Show with Kearney and Baumgartner
Special host Nate Holland of the U.S. Snowboard Team interviews his teammates Hagen Kearney and Nick Baumgartner after they won gold in the snowboard cross team event at the FIS World Championships in Sierra Nevada (ESP). It was the first time the team event was held at the FIS Snowboard World Championships.

FIS Marketing service teams give the FIS World Cup tours the look of a World Cup venue. FIS followed the team around at the recent Nordic competitions in Holmenkollen (NOR) to get an idea of what it takes to implement the FIS World Cup identity.
WADA launches “speak up!” – a secure digital platform to report doping violations
Last week, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) launched Speak Up!, a new, secure digital platform intended for athletes and others to report: alleged Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) under the World Anti-Doping Code (Code); non-compliance violations under the Code; or, any act or omission that could undermine the fight against doping in sport. The Speak Up! platform includes a secure app for iPhone and Android phones, currently available in beta version on the App Store and Google Play.
