U.S. SKI & SNOWBOARD EMERGENCY SUPPORTER GLOBAL RESCUE CONGRATULATES MIKAELA SHIFFRIN ON HER HISTORIC WORLD CUP VICTORY

LEBANON, N.H. (Jan. 24, 2023) – U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Mikaela Shiffrin secured her 83rd FIS World Cup win in Italy to become the winningest female skier of all time.  “Congratulations to the Greatest Of All Time, Mikaela Shiffrin. She is an incredibly talented, mentally resilient athlete in a highly competitive global sport. Winning her 83rd World Cup race is a spectacular achievement,” said Dan Richards, the CEO of Global Rescue, the company providing emergency and crisis support since 2006 for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard team in the event of illness or injury among any of the team members.  Shiffrin's win elevates her past the previous record holder, American skier Lindsey Vonn, and moves her within three victories of Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86 World Cup wins.  “Mikaela Shiffrin is now not only the best woman alpine skier of all time, but she is also a great person, teammate and role model for the sport of alpine skiing,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “As an organization, we are so proud of her accomplishments and cannot wait to see how she further transforms the sport and the history books next.”   Shiffrin admitted she was nervous before her run, but her anxiety washed away once it was time to go. “Everything went quiet and I just pushed as hard as I could at every turn. It's still hard for me to believe that I have the mental focus again to be strong on the second run. It's something I don't take for granted."

Travel Industry Experts Oppose Mask Reinstatement

Biden Administration pushes court to restore traveler mask mandate. 

Lebanon, NH – January 17, 2023 – Travel industry leaders strongly oppose the Biden Administration’s decision to fight to keep a mask mandate in place.  The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments on Tuesday from the Biden Justice Department on behalf of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to reinstate a mask mandate for air travel, after a federal judge in Florida struck down the mandate last April, according to news reports.  "The decision by the Department of Justice to fight to reinstate the mask mandate is not medically indicated and it contradicts President Biden’s declaration in September that the pandemic is over,” said Dan Richards, CEO of Global Rescue, the world’s leading provider of medical, security, evacuation and travel risk management services and a member of the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board at the U.S. Department of Commerce.  “It is a reckless, unnecessary action that will spread traveler fear and uncertainty further damaging an industry badly ravaged by the pandemic,” Richards said.  The fight to keep mask mandates is not a popular one among travel industry groups. The U.S. Travel Association, for example, praised the elimination of the mask mandate. "The current decision to halt enforcement of the federal mask mandate effectively returns the choice of mask usage on planes and other forms of public transportation to travelers and travel industry workers, a further step toward endemic management of COVID," Tori Emerson Barnes, the association’s executive vice president, said at the time.
