Italian Ski Federation Hoping To Host Alpine World Cup Race In Rome
The Italian Ski Federation (FISI) wants to host an alpine world cup race in the nation's capital. If permission is granted, Rome's antique Circus Maximus could host a parallel slalom race starting in '14 or '15. Int'l Ski Federation (FIS) Race Dir Günter Hujara said, "There is no better place for a city event. I think it would be a great spectacle for alpine skiing and the citizens of Rome." FIS has two other city events on this year's world cup calendar in Munich and Moscow (DPA, 10/18).
