Proud main sponsor of the Dutch Sliding Federation (BSBN) since 2021.
NewCold has been the proud main sponsor of the Dutch Sliding Federation (BSBN) since 2021. Piet Meijs, then Vice President of Business Development at NewCold, was introduced to the federation by Janko Franjić, a bobsleigh athlete from Breda. Meijs recognized that both organizations shared the same core values of innovation, trust, agility, and a commitment to continuous improvement. With the enthusiastic support of BSBN Chairman Wim Noorman and former Technical Director Vincent Kortbeek, a partnership based on these shared values was born. NewCold and BSBN signed a sponsorship agreement that ran through the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022 and has since been extended to cover the 2026 Olympics.

2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing
At the 2022 Winter Olympics, the Netherlands was represented by Team NewCold athletes in multiple disciplines, including 2-man bobsleigh, 4-man bobsleigh, women’s monobob, and women’s skeleton. Kimberley Bos put on a remarkable performance in the women’s skeleton competition, becoming the first Dutch person to win a bronze medal in the sport.

Contract extension
Kimberley Bos’ continuous drive to hone her skills and BSBN’s dedication to recruiting the best new talent mirrors NewCold’s determination and drive for success. NewCold and BSBN extended the partnership through the 2026 Olympic Winter Games in Milan and Cortina, Italy. Bos was crowned World Cup overall champion for the 2023/24 season. NewCold is proud of  Bos’ accomplishments and the group of athletes who work hard to realize their dreams of reaching the Winter Olympics. NewCold’s sponsorship helps to make it possible for BSBN athletes to chase their Olympic dreams.
‘‘Let’s keep building on the success and great partnership.’’
‘‘The core values of NewCold—innovation, trust, agility, and commitment to continuous improvement — are in line with the principles of top athletes, from skeleton to bobsleigh. The Dutch Sliding Federation also wants to continuously innovate with its equipment. Athletes and coaches are constantly perfecting the start and descent. Confidence in their abilities plays a major role for them in every descent, both for the individual athlete and for a bobsleigh team. Let’s keep building on the success and great partnership.’’
