So far, so good at the Sochi Olympics for Global Rescue, a company that has partnered with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association since 2006 to provide life-saving medical advisory, evacuation, security and other critical emergency services to skiers, their families and USSA's elite athletes. A Global Rescue representative commented today they have only dealt with minor issues, meaning no extractions or rescues at the Sochi Olympics. Over the years, Global Rescue has performed dozens of missions for USSA and supported the teams at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and Vancouver, Canada, respectively. Global Rescue supports organizations throughout the world and in 2013 provided services in locations as varied as Mt. Everest and Cameroon.

"With Global Rescue providing the highest level of medical and security services for USSA, we're well-prepared for Sochi," said Tiger Shaw chief operating officer of USSA. "Our athletes can focus on delivering exceptional performances with the knowledge that Global Rescue is at the ready."

"We are honored to continue to serve the USSA," said Dan Richards, CEO and founder of Global Rescue. "We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our athletes, both at Sochi and year-round."

The 2014 Winter Olympics run February 7th through February 23.
