WU2013 HOD meeting, day 2

Inspection of the slalom venue in Pozza du Fassa

TRENTO - The heads of delegations’ meeting continued today with a very busy inspectio agenda of sports venues and hotels. The representatives of the delegations began the day with an inspection of the ice rink that will host the men's ice hockey (some preliminaries and finals ) in Canazei. They found that the proposed hitels housing the athletes were very close to the rink (they also visited one of them). It was then the turn of the alpine skiing venue and especially the slalom slope in Pozza di Fassa. Again most of the proposed housing for the athletes do not require the use of any bus for transport to the competition venue.

The ski jumping venue in Predazzo

The magnificent ski jumping stadium located in Predazzo constituted the next step in this inspection tour. It should be emphasized that Ubaldo Prucker, the OC sports director accompanied the delegates throughout the day and presented at each stop the person responsible for the site visit. Moreover all the delegates received info sheets containing the detailed characteristics of each facility.

The cross country and biathlon stadium in Val di Fiemme

The ski and biathlon stadium in Val di Fiemme, the same one that hosted the world championships in both disciplines last winter were the subject of an inspection as well.

Several sites were visted in the afternoon: ice rinks in Cavalese (men's ice hockey), Baselga di Piné (speed skating and curling) and finally Pergine (women's ice hockey).

After this busy day delegates will be invited to ask their questions on Saturday 28 September at the last session of this HoD meeting. At the same time there will be the team draws for Ice Hockey and Curling.
