If the summer's first Odlo "fast forward" multi-sport challenge the week before the ispo show wasn't enough, here comes winter's version. This one will be the second morning of the show (Feb. 2, 2003) in the courtyard area of the fairgrounds, so no one has an excuse to miss it. Each of the four member of 16 teams will cross-country ski, snowshoe, Nordic walk and trail run, partly taking place on an 80-meter oval in the courtyard area complete with obstacles. Participants will include world-class athletes sponsored by exhibiting companies, including Evi Sachenbacher (gold and silver in cross-country skiing), Lothar Leder (Ironman elite triathlete), and Carlo Thraenhardt (one-time international highjumper).
