WHAT ARE THE COSTS?
BSI athletes do not receive full NGB funding for their endeavours to represent Israel at the Games and are required to source their own finances to compete and train internationally. Each athlete will look to raise in the region of $85K to achieve a full competitive season.
There are 17 artificial tracks in the world - and you guessed it - we don’t have a track in Israel, so our athletes travel across Europe, North America and Europe for our races.
COST BREAKDOWN PER ATHLETE:
The areas dependent on achieving funding goals this season include (but not limited to):
$22K | financing a professional support team to provide specialist coaching on the ice, strength and conditioning, psychology, nutrition and data analysis.
$22K | for accommodation and subsistence for each individual and their coach.
$11K | covering track fees average $40 per run, which is 2 runs per day, 5 days per week - 28 weeks per 20-21 season = total 140 days / 280 runs.
$10K | towards equipment to help me to purchase, trial and test new kit and to optimise my equipment set up ahead of the Olympic year. (example costs - runners costing $800per set, helmet $600, speed suit $800)
$15K | travel costs, flight, equipment baggage costs, car hire.
