From Jamaica to the Frozen Lake of St. Moritz
Among the several directors, actors and producers who crowd the pages of the Locarno 66 official catalogue, on page 252 we find a sportsman: the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, showing all his athletic talent on the Letzigrund Stadium running track.
He is only one of the champions who yearly take part to one of the Top Events of Switzerland (TEOS), the association that collects the best sport and culture happenings of our Country – including the Festival del film Locarno.
The world's fastest man (who recently won the 100m World Championships 100m in Moscow with a time of 9.77s) will be then in Zurich on August 29th to run at the Weltklasse Zürich, followed some days later by the best golf players who will compete in the Omega European Masters Crans-Montana (from September 5th to 8th).
For the winter sports fans, the Ski World Cup Wengen (January 17-19 2014) will be one of the main events in the Ski World Cup season; the frozen expanse of the Lake of St. Moritz will otherwise host the White Turf St. Moritz historical races. Three sessions are scheduled: on February 9th, 16th and 23rd, when the magnificent Engadinian town will host more than 30,000 spectators.Mattia Bertoldi
