A picture-postcard Swedish town with snowy woods and blue lakes, Falun hosted the cross-country skiing Masters World Cup from 18 to 27 February 2010.  Also taking part in this event was the President of the Carvico Group, Laura Colnaghi Calissoni, entering the three individual races and winning the highest step on the podium every time!
With times of 35:29.7 in the 10Km free technique and 55:09.1 in the 15Km and 1h50:50 in the 30Km classic technique, the President set a record that had never been reached by an Italian athlete in the history of the cross-country skiing Masters World Cup before now: winning three individual gold medals in the same year competing in the two techniques, classic and free.
Now she has added these three victories, won with tenacity and sporting spirit from the very first seconds of the race, to her already glittering array of medals (four individual golds and three golds in the relay).
Three days of snow, cold and sport where the protagonists were not only this extraordinary sportswoman, but also her hi-tech outfits made with Igloo, one on the latest fabrics created by Carvico S.p.A.. An indispensable ally when racing competitively and giving a top performance, protected from the cold and with unrestricted movement……Igloo is a high-tech fabric in super opaque white polyester designed to envelope and protect the athlete’s body. The use of Xtra Life LYCRA® ensures optimal fit and lasting shape retention. It sculpts and moulds the figure, protects from UV rays (UPF 50+), resists pilling and abrasions – and the results are plain to see!
  Carvico and sport: more and more united, more and more winning.
