Cross Country Skiing
Mass-starting, double pursuit and sprint are new nordic skiing events in for women and men during the European Winter-Sport Championship of the Deaf in Fussen, Germany 14 to 21 February this month. This new competition schedule was decided at the team captain meeting during the Sundsvall Deaflympics as a innovating experiment, to increase excitement among the competitors and spectators. If this new competition schedule is sucessful, we wish the same for the 2007 Deaflympics in Park City, USA. For more details about the European Winter-Sport Championship, see www.edso.net.
