The commission that is evaluating the Italian candidacy to visit the stadium that should host the Opening Ceremony. Malagò: “One more card, even with the new system”. The idea is to let the athletes sleep in Milan for the ceremony before taking them to the competition sites
It is not known if he will live until then, the potentially Olympic 2026 thanks to the Milan-Cortina ticket, but meanwhile the Meazza stadium of San Siro collects so many compliments during the visit of the evaluation commission of the IOC. “This is an iconic scenario of world sport, all athletes would be happy to experience the opening ceremony here,” says Octavian Morariu, the former rugby player who leads the task force sent from Lausanne. Malagò tries for the umpteenth time to defuse any misunderstanding: “San Siro is objectively an extra card – says the president of Coni – but I do not hear that the new plant would not be too”. In short, in any case the stage factor would not affect the identity card of the candidacy that will duel with Stockholm on June 24th in the challenge that the 2026 Olympics is up for grabs.
