British, US Olympic bodies to share expertise

The British Olympic Association and the US Olympic Committee have signed an agreement to share resources and expertise ahead of the next Summer and Winter Games.

BOA chairman Colin Moynihan and USOC chairman Larry Probst signed the agreement in San Francisco this week after negotiations in Vancouver.

The BOA says the bodies will consult on “issues of mutual interest” for London 2012 and cooperate on ski events ahead of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

The agreement will include the creation of a British governing body for skiing and snowboarding following the collapse of Snowsport GB a week before the Vancouver Games.
