You are entirely self-funding this team?!  Have you tried the Jewish sports team owners?

And donations/sponsorships are tax deductible?  Why raffle your ring? Honestly I would think it's the one thing I wouldn't sell. :o

How many Starwood points would @Dan have to bid to win the ring outright?

Yes. Israel doesn't fund bobsled, they just don't have the budget for it. And yes as well to the team owners.

They are! We're a 501c3.

If it can help raise enough interest to get this team get a bit more funding and closer to the goal, why worry about a piece of metal?

Haha. I'd think after the World Series @Dan has had enough sports experience to account for a couple of lifetimes that was pretty epic, but I'd be open to the ring landing in Cleveland  ;D

Captain’s Log--Oct. 21-22, 2022--On UA 1013 somewhere en route to LGA

AJ—BobTeam Edelman Pilot

New uniforms and more:
(https://i.ibb.co/k021WmD/2020-10-19-16-06-16.jpg) (https://ibb.co/k021WmD) (https://i.ibb.co/gDXnvS2/2020-10-19-16-06-22.jpg) (https://ibb.co/gDXnvS2) (https://i.ibb.co/q7F62v5/2020-10-19-16-06-28.jpg) (https://ibb.co/q7F62v5)

Today was a typical “that’s crazy” day for the team.
As some know, the bobsled team has started out on a rather difficult footing.  Back in May we secured a commitment from an intended benefactor to cover the entirety of a 6-year long medal-development cycle for Israel bobsled.  However, we were informed a month and a half ago that none of the commitment can be honored.  To save the team I am covering them with savings and borrowing, but it has also meant that logistically decisions have to be made far more “on the fly” as we need to chase ice-time in a bit of a piecemeal fashion.
 
Nonetheless, as Israelis it’s in our nature to keep pushing forward.  The number one thing that will increase the Olympic qualification chances is actual time on ice.  The only track in North America that stands to be in a position to open is Whistler, BC (Canada) on November 9th, which we planned to take advantage of with back-to-back training camps.  The on-the-fly logistics and daily changes in plans are one of the things that make competing in Olympic sport for Israel both unique, sometimes lonely, and difficult (explained below.)
The primary source of effort the past 2 months (apart from figuring out how to save the team to begin with) has been visa and border-related, as one might expect during Covid-19.  Our 3 superb Israeli push-athletes have never been to the US before and obtaining a visa in a reasonable timeframe has been difficult, with a 3-month backlog on visa interviews.  Thankfully eventually we were able to expedite the interviews and they should receive their visas shortly.

The issue of travel, however, is still complicated to other countries.  There is currently a border restriction between the US and Canada (since March,) but there are exceptions granted including for commerce and services critical that can be performed only in Canada (i.e. non-discretionary.)  The issue of whether we are discretionary/non-discretionary would disallow/allow us to enter Canada, and by extension begin the very critical training we need.
After weeks of back and forth with Canada’s Border Information Service that indicated we shouldn’t have a problem getting an exemption crossing the border (as the coach we'd have at the camp is Canadian and this is our only job with a necessity that it’s performed in Canada,) Chance King Doyle (one of the breakmen) and I flew into Glacier Park International Airport and drove north to the Coutts Border Crossing.  From there we planned to quarantine in Calgary for 2 weeks, meet up with the coach, and drive to Whistler for our training in November. 

The drive is usually a 3 hour scenic route through mountains and the Blackfoot Nation, but was slowed to about 6 hours as there were blizzard conditions.
Unfortunately, we were turned away at the border, as the agents did not wish to “open the floodgates” for athletes entering during restrictions.  Completely understandable yet disappointing.
 
It’s one of the kinds of episodes that makes the journey of representing Israel in Olympic sport somewhat unique and at points exhausting and lonely.  From coordinating visas to attempting to cross the border and present a case for exemption, it’s on Israeli athletes in the sliding sport to manage the process themselves. Logistics are very difficult in sliding sport, and plans almost often change day to day. As a sample timeline:
 
Last Wednesday:
--Decision made to attend the camps in Whistler beginning Nov 9. 
--Expedite the visa interview process with the athletes in Israel.
 
Thursday-Monday: Call Canada Border Services Agencies and Public Health Services to go over our case
 
Monday:
--decide to head to Canada on Wednesday—head to Boston from NYC to collect things.
--Lay out a 2-week quarantine plan including grocery delivery—the quarantine is absolute, you are not allowed to leave your room nor have interaction with others.
--Visa interview takes place in Israel—visa will be granted, make plans for arrival in November/December of the athletes.
--Sponsorship pitch calls
Tuesday:
--Pack
--Covid and antigen tests for the athletes.
--Book flights and rental cars for Kalispell, MT next day
Wednesday:
--Fly into FCA, meet Chance, drive to the border
--turned away provisionally pending letter from Public Health Authority granting us exemption
--10p, find lodging near the border
Thursday:
--Head to the border at 7a, formally turned away at 10a
--race back to FCA airport, book flights on the way to MSY (Chance lives in Louisiana,) and LGA (a last ditch effort to head to the Canadian consulate and plead my case for a national exemption letter.)  Without this exemption letter, we will wait for Lake Placid to hopefully open up at some point, though there is no clear date as of yet.
--2.30—fly out
--on flight—continue sponsorship pitches
 
We will remain strong and continue to do everything in our power to see through that Israel has a successful Olympic run.  Until the next log!

Thanks for the suggestion @bestwatchman I really appreciate it.  Unfortunately as we were rejected, trying to get into Canada again under the same circumstances would result in us getting into some trouble, so we are instead headed to Korea tomorrow!

Yes we can get you one but they're made out of very specialized mesh/lycra material so they're expensive to produce (about $200 a piece.) for a tax-deductible donation above a certain level we can definitely send one over, feel free to PM.

Have a great shabbos, from a very draining government quarantine (we're assigned to different locations around Seoul, run by the army) here in Seoul.  Please don't hesitate to send me or the team any messages, we get a lot of chizzuk/strength from knowing people care about what we're trying to do.  Can DM here or send an email to adam.edelman@olympian.org

Some people ask about food and keeping things kosher. Let me introduce my staple meal--I call it "slop."  It's the cheapest way to get a mix of protein/carbs/fats. I need to keep up my nutrients and protein but need to keep food costs as low as possible. This concoction helps with that :)

Brief update November 22, 2020 ahead of a *big* update later this week.
Have to plug this: I continue to search for sponsors as the season is only 7% funded as of now, and I'm a couple weeks from officially touching the debt I've taken on. If you know anyone who'd find value in helping the team please reach out.

Training footage from yesterday.
Thank you so much to those who've reached out with words of support, and a couple of people for donating training runs! That's amazing and an incredible help to the team. My sincerest appreciation.

No sliding today (Wednesday,) back in the saddle tomorrow.  Interesting to think--I've been on the road so often that I've only been able to celebrate thanksgiving once in 6 years, that being last year.  I didn't even recall that it was going to be Thanksgiving.

Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy holiday.
From PyeongChang,

I believe that there is an agreement that facilities have to remain open for at least 10 years. That was not called in the 2006 games but I believe that is the results of Italys government going bankrupt. Bob tracks are huge money losers though. The maintenance and upkeep and operational costs exceed a half a million dollars a year minimum

Almost a full recovery. Still needs a couple weeks to grow back the skin but it'll be great b"h. Thanks so much for asking


A most Olympic x-ray, and I don't have a broken bone which was my biggest fear. I'm wary of muscle or ligament damage and will monitor.

Crashes are very common in bob, I heard that one of the teams training in Germany right now has just crashed 5x straight, so it's nothing to lose sleep over. Eager to get back to it. Thought I'd explain it a bit so people understand why a crash occurs.

The crash is an easy one to diagnose. I hit before the entry of the corner which sent me into it and angled up high. The corner has two distinct oscillations. Which now had exaggerated peaks and shortened widths. I compounded the issue by driving the sled very low on the downward portion.

At the end of the two oscillations there was still more corner because I had shortened the horizontal distance traveled so much. Centrifugal force pulled me back up as the corner ended and there was nothing for the sled to do but flip over.

Crashes are common in Bobsled and no reason to harp on this one, only noteworthy because of the realization that my sliding senses had dulled a bit. I made a mistake, a very common one in bob, but one I felt that the me from 19 months ago would never have made, and it came at a very high risk.  We'll be back though, that's what Israel does, and this will happen again. Perhaps a dozen or dozens of times.




Back to training on Friday, can't wait!

We all have our things we can take, I'm very blessed hashem gave me this as an outlet and for keeping me safe on this one given it was a really bad hit. I view sport as very similar to most other endeavours that everyone experiences. Crashing the Bob is a setback but so is failing a test, etc. B"h I have the country and people to help push things forward. Right now the left shoulder is pretty useless and hard to deal with but that reminds me that I'm lucky to have a shoulder that functions at all.

Honestly, I'm so impressed with the breakman in the back, YongJin. It was his first day as we wait for the Israeli boys to get their visas and then quarantine and he took it like a champ. When driving someone in the back and you crash all you can think about is whether they're alright. My head was taking a beating as we crashed our way down to the bottom (there's no way to retract your head into the sled, it just gets brutally beaten as you slide on it,) but that meant his potentially was in a worse position, but thankfully he says he's okay. I don't know how he can get back in so nonchalantly on Friday. He deserves the most credit of anyone.

Just went over to fb.
Can't say I watched all of it, but skimmed through a lot of it.
Wow, wow, wow! Just unbelievable on so many levels.
Your attitude and perseverance really has such a rich history, of such strong character!
Fascinating and very impressed with your passion in mental health.
Love the ddf thought process at about 45 min in about the mileage runs.
Keep on pumping!
