Swiss Info news Letter
The largest ever Swiss delegation at the 20th Olympic Winter Games in Turin will be going to Italy with high hopes of repeating past Olympic successes.
The Swiss Olympic Association expects the 130 athletes to win eight medals this year. Four years ago the Swiss team brought home 11 medals.
Swiss Olympic is has fixed a target of eight medals for the Swiss team at the Turin games, which take place from February 10-26.
The team's Olympic song, called We are on fire! was composed by Marc Sway, a Swiss of Brazilian origins. It was presented for the first time at the Swiss sports awards.
The Swiss team won 11 medals (3 golds, 2 silvers and 6 bronzes) at Salt Lake City, Utah, four years ago.
In Calgary in 1998 the medal total was 15. However, other games have proved less fruitful: Nagano in 1998 (7), Lillehammer in 1994 (9), and Albertville in 1992 (3).
Turin is made up of a record 130 athletes. It's one of the largest ever, as it includes for the first time two ice hockey teams.
- The delegation's budget for the games is SFr2 million ($1.6 million).
- In Salt Lake City, the delegation comprised 114 athletes.
- Four years before that, in Nagano in Japan, it had only 74 members.
