Women's Course Changed

The landscape changes to one of the women's skiing courses for February's Turin Olympics have been completed.

The layout had been criticised for being too flat and easy. Hilde Gerg, from Germany, had led a petition to move the super-G to nearby Sestriere, where men's races will be held.

However, the Turin organisers, the International Olympic Committee and the International Ski Federation ordered that five jumps be changed and a new curve running against the slope be added.
