IBSF and FIL visit potential locations for 2022 Olympic icetrack near Beijing
FIL and IBSF requested additional information by the end of August, such as geology aspects, weather conditions and detailed layout of the track. After that track commission members of both federations will pay another visit to China.
„Visiting Beijing now together with our FIL colleagues was very important to explain the basic requirements and the expectations of both federations“, said IBSF president Ivo Ferriani. „Our main focus is on the sport and the sustainability of this project. I am pleasantly surprised as to how excellent the Organizing Committee prepared our visit. Our comments were carefully noted and I am sure that these will have been taken into account at our next visit.
Ferriani and Fendt were accompanied by the chairmen of the track commissions, Giacomo Dariz (IBSF) and Markus Aschauer (FIL), as well as track commission members Thomas Schwab (IBSF) and Walter Plaikner (FIL). ©RWH2016
