Cortina d’Ampezzo (BL), February 18, 2021 – All the staff of Fondazione Cortina 2021 express their support and solidarity for Markus Waldner, FIS official responsible for the men’s World Cup and World Championship races, who received death threats via e-mail after the controversy over the execution of the parallel giant in Cortina which fell under its jurisdiction.

For an event like ours, based on the values of sport and fair play, it is unacceptable that an esteemed professional like Markus receives such grave messages, which go beyond normal debate and confrontation.

During these years, all the people who have worked for the Cortina 2021 World Championships have dedicated themselves to the success of the event with professionalism and passion, and as such we are open to honest confrontation, but threats of any kind are entirely unacceptable.
