There's been a lot of talk in the media lately about Olympic hopefuls turning to crowd-funding websites to help offset higher costs of training and decreasing subsidies. However, I can't really find any skaters out there who are doing the same thing. It's mainly skiers, snowboarders, and speed skaters. There appears to be two major websites out there: RallyMe.com and GoFundMe.com.
I did find one ice dancing team who has a page on GoFundMe.com. They are Plutowska and Gerber of Poland. Here is their page.
Anybody else see skaters out there on these sites? It would be a good way to have a direct impact on their training.
