Young, dynamic and ... ITALIANS. Here are the athletes of Livigno who will join the national teams competing in various disciplines like alpine ski, biathlon, cross-country ski and snowboard.
They are young, dynamic, aggressive and bring around the world the name of Livigno. They are the winter sports athletes that Livigno has chosen as testimonial. Roberto Nani, Jole Galli, Thomas Bormolini, Maurizio Bormolini, Saverio Zini, Nicolas e Thomas Bormolini, Simone Urbani were born and raised in Livigno and are definitely gaining ground on their disciplines.
“Thanks to them - says Luca Moretti, president of Apt Livigno – Livigno will have even more resonance among athletes and sports fans who follow international competitions. Tourism linked to sport activities represents an important target for us. Livigno is a great outdoor gym, ideal for training at altitude both summer and winter. Thanks to the altitude, in autumn we are able to anticipate the winter sports season becoming a reference point for the National Teams. I also want to point out that these guys, young and full of enthusiasm, gave the country a breath of fresh air which involved many children and guys of the Ski Club Livigno”.
