Pieces of art for the winners

Ski pioneer, artist, chairman of the FIS World Cup Alpine Ski Committee and honorary president of World Cup Gardena-Gröden Erich Demetz is donating two of his very own pieces of art to the winners of this year’s races on Saslong.

The theme is abstract representing Mr. Demetz identification with contemporary art but the colors reflect both those of the international ski federation FIS as well as those of World Cup Gardena-Gröden. Mr. Demetz will present his gift to the winner of Friday’s Super-G on December 18th, 2009 during that evening’s award ceremony. The second piece of art is for the winner of Saturday’s classic Downhill race and will be presented at the Finish by the artist immediately after the termination of the competition.
