Mission accomplished, confirmation arrived from New Zealand: Campbell Wright qualified for the Olympics – Fondo Italia

mission accomplished! Thanks to the superior performance, at only 19 years old, Campbell Wright Qualified for the Beijing Olympics. The young New Zealander needed to finish at least 16th in order to be able to meet the extremely difficult standards imposed by the New Zealand Olympic Committee. But the boy did not give up, and at the very last chance an individual from Anterselva, on a stormy day that put even the great champions in difficulty, managed to take the extraordinary fifteenth place that allowed him to qualify for the Beijing Games.

In the evening there was also confirmation from New Zealand Olympic Committeewho, after also contacting his coach, brother of Luca Bormolini from Livigno, who had been following him for some time by hosting him at home, officially announced the call-up of Wright: «Campbell Wright will become the second athlete ever to represent New Zealand at the Winter Olympics, after being selected by Team New Zealand at Beijing 2022.”.

Lovely comments of joy under this post, also from Thomas Bormolini, Eva Puskarcikova, Didier Bionaz, Mirco Romanin, Filip Fjeld Andersen and many others who know him well and are happy with him. He was interviewed by Fondo Italia the day after the match, when the youngster, who started with only number seven, was still unaware that he had qualified for the games and was only giving himself a 20% chance. We are glad to do it again.
