Int'l Ski Federation President Fears Impact Of Winter World Cup On 2022 Olympics
Published October 16, 2013
Int'l Ski Federation (FIS) President Gian Franco Kasper insisted Tuesday that "he had growing concerns about switching the 2022 World Cup to a date which could see it overshadow the Winter Olympics that year," according to the AFP. Kasper said, "We have big fears, if the football World Cup takes place in January, or close to the Winter Games. It would be really bad for us." If FIFA did organize a World Cup in the winter, Kasper said that "the FIS would favour it taking place in November and December." Kasper: "That would effect us less." He added that he hoped "FIFA would take some account" of their fears (AFP, 10/15).
