Performance on demand
remains the biggest obstacle
for 14 of the 15-strong New
Zealand team when the Winter
Olympics start on February 7 in
Sochi. Weather, unless you are
indoor long-track speed skater
Shane Dobbin, inevitably plays
a disruptive role at some stage,
forcing competitors on and off
Hence the New Zealand
outdoor contingent, made up of
six freeskiers, five snowboarders,
two skeleton racers and one
slalom skier, are brushing up
on their mental skills so they
switch on immediately once the
snowflakes, rain or fog relent.
Jossi Wells is considered a
rare medal hope to match New
Zealand s solitary silver secured
by Annelise Coberger in the
slalom at Albertville in 1992. He
will compete in the new Olympic
events, freeski slopestyle and
halfpipe, disciplines where
podium personnel change
regularly in international
"We contest our events a lot
of the time in bad weather, it
depends how you adapt," Wells
says. "If conditions are gnarly,
it s up to me to get through it.
It s not like the 100m. Well, it is,
but only if you add in a tightrope.
e risk is higher and sometimes
you re going to fall off. It s skill-
based whereas in the 100m you re
pushing your body to its limits.
"What I need to remember is
that no one tells me how to ski,
I choose myself. I give it my own
personal flair to make it work."
Despite a nagging heel injury,
the 23-year-old recently won
slopestyle gold at the FIS World
Cup in Gstaad, Switzerland. e
win was his first at a World Cup
and secured New Zealand an
extra Games quota spot.
Wells checked out Sochi last
February before the test event
and will attend the Games
with brothers Byron (halfpipe)
and Beau-James (halfpipe and
slopestyle). ree siblings have
never been selected in a New
Zealand Olympic team before.
Father Bruce will also attend as
coach. At 15, youngest brother
Jackson is ineligible for selection
but is considered a future
prospect. Trampolining and rock
climbing are understood to have
been elements which led to the
family s alpine success.
"We travel together a lot, skiing
on a daily basis," Wells says.
"We re really close so when we
ride there is a camaraderie which
you can only get as brothers.
We help push each other, which
makes for a good support system."
Mental skills specialist Pete
Sanford will be travelling with
the New Zealand team to Sochi.
He tells athletes to be prepared
for anything in such an open
environment: " e snow can be
packed in harder which changes
the composition of a run but
they re elements which are out
of your control. Technique is
the key and how you execute
processes and plans.
"Getting athletes to connect
with the present is the key. at
can be achieved through a variety
of skills: imagery, self-talk and a
clear routine with no reference to
the past or future."
Sanford also looks out for what
he terms "the games wobbles",
where athletes get overawed by
the Olympic environment.
"We work on reminding
athletes what worked in the past.
Yes, it s a different environment
living in a village and dealing
with increased security but the
halfpipe is still 6.7m (deep), the
degree of slope is the same, you re
still skiing on snow where you can
execute the same tricks. Weather
halts are part of the sport. You
won t get a re-run unless it turns
An anti-corruption campaigner said
today Russia was spending far more on
the Winter Olympics than President
Vladimir Putin has estimated and
accused politicians and businessmen of
Alexei Navalny, who led anti-Putin
street protests in 2011-12, published
data culled from government budgets
and construction companies on a
website (sochi.fbk.info) that he
said highlighted overspending and
"Russia s overall expenses have already
reached $50 billion, which makes the
Russian Olympics five times more
expensive than the Vancouver Olympics
(in 2010)," Navalny s report on the
games said, that open in the Black Sea
resort of Sochi on February 7.
Navalny accused Putin --- who has
staked personal and political prestige in
the games --- of helping enrich friends
by awarding them contracts to build
Olympic venues at a cost several times
more than those of similar facilities
" e whole Sochi project was
conceived not only to produce the
Olympic Games but also enrich a
small number of Putin s close friends,"
Navalny told Reuters.
Putin has dismissed accusations of
"We don t see any large-scale instances
of corruption during our preparations ...
"If anyone has any information about
corruption in Sochi, please hand it over,
we will be glad and grateful," Putin said
in a broadcast interview with Russian
and foreign media this month.
Putin said this month that Russia had
spent some $6.5b on preparations for
But there are huge differences in the
estimated cost of the games even within
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak
said last year that Russia would spend
some $50b, including the infrastructure
projects around Sochi as well as the
Navalny s report, which won little
attention in Russia s tightly controlled
media, also contradicted government
statements that private companies
had financed more than half of the
investment in Sochi.
It said funds channelled through
state-controlled companies had been
portrayed as private, rather than public
investment and that the private sector
had really put in less than 4% of the
"In their statements, officials
referred to investments of Gazprom,
Sberbank, Russian Railways and other
government-affiliated entities as private
investments," the report said, adding
that under international accounting
standards such investments would be
considered state money.
More than $12b in state funds had
been divided between two companies
--- Olimpstroy and Russian Railways
--- to build venues and roads, according
to the report.
It said $8.7b had been spent to build
a railroad and motorway, around 50km
long, to the Rosa Khutor ski resort.
Russian Railways declined to
comment on the report and Olimpstroy
was not available for a reaction.

Manager Arsene Wenger is set to sign
a new contract to extend his 18-year
stay with the English Premier League
leaders, the club s chief executive said
Wenger will have more money to
spend on players this summer after the
club signed a new kit supply deal with
German company Puma that begins on
Chief executive Ivan Gazidis gave the
clearest indication yet that Frenchman
Wenger would remain at Arsenal,
indicating that finalising a new contract
was just a matter of time.
"We ve always supported Arsene,
the board has always been completely
behind him as has (owner) Stan
Kroenke," Gazidis told a news
conference when asked about the future
of the manager whose contract runs out
at the end of the season.
"We are comfortable in the position,
relaxed about it. As I ve said before,
Arsene will be extending with us
and at the right time we ll make that
announcement," he added.
Wenger has been Arsenal manager
since 1996 and has led the club to three
Premier League titles and four FA
However, the trophies have dried
up since 2005 although Arsenal have
continued to qualify for the Champions
e Puma deal, worth around
£30 million a season, will help Arsenal
to compete with the top clubs in Europe
in the transfer market.
"One of our long-term goals has
to been to increase our commercial
revenues and there is a football reason
for that, it s to be able to invest that in
our squad," Gazidis said.
"So this is a very important step in
terms of our progression on the pitch
and as we look from this summer
onwards, that money will be available
to the manager," he added.
Puma has ousted Nike as the kit
supplier to Arsenal in a deal that starts
on July 1.
Helped by an enhanced sponsorship
deal with airline Emirates, the north
London club spent a club record
£42.5m on German Mesut Ozil at the
start of this season. --- Reuters
