World Ski Championships 2005

The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2005 were held in Bormio and Santa Caterina Valfurva from January 28 to February 13, 2005. The men’s competitions took place in Bormio, on the Stelvio track while the women’s competitions were held in Santa Caterina Valfurva, on the brand new Debora Compagnoni slope (the track was created on the occasion of the event.) 15 days full of emotions, involving more than 60 nations!

The American Bode Miller won the downhill and Super G while Meier‘s first-place in giant slalom and Raich‘s first-place in slalom and combined were the best results for Austria. Janica Kostelić did great on the Debora Compagnoni, she won the downhill, slalom and combined while Anja Pärson was on top of the giant slalom and Super G podium. The Italian “azzurri” got four medals – Giorgio Rocca (bronze in slalom and combined), Lucia Recchia (silver in Super G) and a young Elena Fanchini (silver in downhill.)
