Roz G and Britt Hawes Rip The Olympic Halfpipe
Shout out to two Coalition Snow athletes who took the spotlight on the world stage during the 2018 Winter Olympics! It hasn't been an easy road. The women's side of halfpipe skiing often gets a bad rap. Low pay, a lack of sponsors and ski industry media questioning the sports relevancy are just a few of the things women face every single day in their sport - along with tough training schedules, lots of travel and injuries (Roz competed with a broken arm this year. NBD).
We're so proud and inspired watching both Roz and Britt fight tooth and nail to keep doing what they love and paving the way for future shredders.
Wondering what took us so long to congratulate them? Well, it's got to do with the IOC and their rules around athlete sponsors. Specifically, Rule 40.
Learn more about the ole Rule 40, plus more on the latest from Juicy Bits:
The Olympics are over and so is Rule 40 which means we can officially talk about the Olympics and Rule 40! This week on Juicy Bits, the ladies explain exactly what Rule 40 is and why it sucked so much and why we’re so happy it’s FINALLY over.
Jen and Jillian also get into the nitty gritty of the Elizabeth Swaney case, is she a disgrace to Women’s Halfpipe or Queen of Not Giving a F*ck? (Read more about that here).
The ladies also go into depth about the Women’s Slopestyle Snowboarding Event, and why FIS decided they shouldn’t be given the courtesy a weather hold. Hint: Adverse conditions are the nature of the sport…AND being a woman in the Olympics apparently.
So tune in to this week’s juicy new episode where we’re recapping all things Olympic, discussing all the main ladies like Mikaela, Lindsey, Esther, Roz G, and Britt, and getting into the wins and losses where women’s gender is concerned.
Jen and Jillian, they love hearing from their listeners! Shoot them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them what you thought about the Olympics. Wanna get a shout out on Juicy Bits? Of course you do! Check out our Patreon page here.
