-28. Vicenza Calcio and Sisa to join MTBO 2011

SISA AND VICENZA CALCIO. The opening ceremony of MTBO 2011 has got a new gem. Thanks to the partnership with Sisa, an important Italian supermarket chain, some football players of Vicenza Calcio will greet the international delegation representing the local sport community. Youth players will bear the flags of the different countries.

A NEW BORN IN THE STAFF. Congratulations on the birth of a new baby go to Andrea Cipriani, course setter of the Middle distance final. Andrea became father of a beautiful baby girl named Ellen. With many compliments to the mum, Nadia.

TRIBUTO TO CADEL EVANS. It's a day of celebration for the Australian, too. The Aussie bikers are celebrating the victory of Cadel Evans in Tour de France 2011. Last year in Portugal the Kangaroos team won an historical gold medal in the sprint distance with the reigning world champion Adrian Jackson. The Aussie squad will meet a special friend in Vicenza: the Italian Federation appointed as technical delegate the Italian Australian Maurizio Ongania, a very experienced orienteer living in the Veneto region.
