  7. Skiing: Mattarella phoned me says Goggia

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 10 – President Sergio Mattarella phoned
Sofia Goggia after a knee injury ruled the hot favourite for
downhill gold out of the world championships in Cortina, the
Italian Olympic champion skier said Wednesday.
    “I was phoned by President Mattarella a week ago and seeing the
situation of the country is not exactly idyllic the phone call
really pleased me,” said the 28-year-old, who became the first
Italian woman to win the Olympic downhill at the 2018 games in
in PyeongChang.
    Goggia, who won the last four downhills leading into Cortina,
said “seeing all the change at the top (of government) that are
happening, it really pleased me”.
    Goggia said being forced out of Cortina had been an “extremely
tough blow” but she was now setting her sights on the next
Olympics. (ANSA).
