Turin Test Run Success

The first test event in the city of Turin, for the 2006 Winter Olympics, was a success.

The organising committee of the Turin Games, reported near-capacity crowds for the three days of the European Short Track Speed Skating Championship.

Apparently, over 13,000 tickets were sold.

The championships were held in the Palavela stadium rebuilt, at a cost of over 50 million euros, after 44 years of lying derelict.
