PARK CITY — Four years ago, Lauren Gibbs headed to Lake Placid thinking she’d get a cool story about the time she left her sales job for an Olympic tryout. Instead, she got a new career path and definitely some better stories since then. Now a brakeman on the U.S. team, Gibbs got her second bobsled World Cup medal of the season on Friday and took another step toward a goal she didn’t know she’d ever have.
Just months before the Winter Olympics, the World Anti-Doping Agency has said Russia has not done enough to police doping in sport. The International Olympic Committee, meanwhile, faces a looming decision on whether Russian athletes should compete in the Games amid calls to ban the country outright. One would be forgiven for the déjà vu lingering from last summer. But the scenario isn’t only a distant memory. It’s a current reality.
The Russian Anti-Doping Agency should not be declared compliant with the world anti-doping code, a World Anti-Doping Agency committee recommended to the organization’s director general. WADA's foundation board is meeting in Seoul on Thursday to review, among other things, whether RUSADA should return to compliance for the first time in two years.
Through one heat of the four-man bobsled World Cup race, U.S. teams are second (Codie Bascue), tied for 16th (Nick Cunningham) and 20th (Justin Olsen). Second heat goes from 20th to first, so Olsen's sled will be doing back-to-back runs after finishing the first heat.
Four years ago, Lauren Gibbs couldn't have imagined this future. Now the LA native is trying to make her first Olympic bobsled team. With two podiums in two weeks, @lagibbs84 is off to a good start. https://t.co/mKhdqmN8XD
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
