A 1964 Olympic gold medalist in pairs rowing, Jackson has more than three decades of high-performance sports administration experience. He was the founding CEO of the Own the Podium program between 2005-2010, which helped Canada win a national-record 14 gold medals at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Jackson takes the reins of Alpine Canada, the national governing body for alpine, para-alpine and ski cross racing, from Max Gartner, who resigned in June. "Im pleased to assist Alpine Canada during this time of transition," Jackson said in a release after agreeing to serve on a temporary basis. He is not a candidate for the permanent position.

"He will be missed but after over 30 years of service his contribution to ski racing in Canada will always be remembered."

Dual premiership-winning coach Chris Anderson fears rugby league may be dead in 10 years if the NRL doesnt get its house in order.Anderson is pleading with selfish club bosses to end their war with ARL Commission chairman John Grant for the greater good of the game - or face catastrophic consequences.But while he is seriously concerned about the threat from AFL and soccer, those two rival football codes arent Andersons biggest worry.Our biggest danger is rugby union, the former Canterbury, Melbourne, Cronulla, Sydney Roosters and Kangaroos coach told AAP.Not as in it taking it over, but a Murdoch or a Packer coming in and saying rugby union in Australia needs grassroots competition. They (the ARU) havent got enough money to make it happen.Weve got the best grassroots competition in Australia so if Murdoch came in and said to every player were going to double your wages and youre going to play rugby union next year.Its a big world sport. Its taken over Europe. Rugby leagues died in Europe. All good players now go to union; in England, in France.So its a big game. Its growing in America. Thats our danger. If we dont get our house in order, our danger is well be playing rugby union in 10 years.Anderson can understand NRL club boosses for being upset at having their promised funding from 2018 cut. Sergei Fedorov Jersey. But hes still siding with Grant and the commission, who instead want to invest in grassroots rugby league to address declining player numbers.Theres more than just NRL. The clubs dont see that. They just see themselves, Anderson said.Clubs are a little bit selfish. I think the structures not right. The structure needs to be that the clubs cant run head office. Head office has to run the clubs.You cant throw a ton of money at the clubs and not put it into development.And we need to change the way that weve treated country rugby league. The demographics have changed there.If we dont change those things, rugby league will die. AFL are genius in grassroots (development). They throw a lot of money at grassroots.If we dont do that, theyll hurt us.As well as rugby union, Anderson worries about the continuing surge of AFL and football on the back of the Socceroos three straight World Cup appearances.All our kids played soccer til they were eight or nine and then came to rugby league. Now theyve got a reason to stay in soccer. ' ' '
