Michela Moioli will be Italy’s standard-bearer at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games, scheduled for next February 4th to 20th. This was decided by the President of Coni, Giovanni Malagò, after having talked about it with Sofia Goggia and with the President of the Italian Winter Sports Federation, Flavio Roda, following the rehabilitation program for the Olympic champion in downhill after the injury occurred last Sunday in Cortina d’Ampezzo. Subsequently, President Malagò informed the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella of the change of standard bearer, who on 23 December had handed over the Tricolor to Sofia Goggia. Michela Moioli’s choice was appreciated by the Head of State who invited Malagò to send a message of speedy recovery through him: “Cheering for her”, Mattarella said and Malagò immediately reported it to Sofia Goggia who words of the President of the Republic drew further reasons to try to recover in time for the downhill race on February 15th. Coni reserves the right to appoint a standard bearer for the closing ceremony scheduled for February 20 in the coming weeks.
