Today USOPC released its 2019 Sport Benefits Statement for US Figure Skating:

"The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee’s Sport Benefits Statement provides an annual overview highlighting how the USOPC allocates resources directly to athletes and in support of athletes through their member organizations (i.e. National Governing Bodies and High-Performance Management Organizations). The figures presented herein represent a combination of direct cash payments, USOPC-provided services and value-in-kind provisions to athletes and/or member organizations."

"These statements are a new function of our organizational transparency, and for the first time, provide a holistic look at the services and financial resources the USOPC allocates directly to athletes, and in support of athletes through their NGB or HPMO. Individually, these documents offer a great deal of very specific information that reflect the depth of the USOPC’s partnership with each of these critical partners."
