No Ladies team event in Oslo


No team event in 2011 By now there won’t be a ladies team competition at the 2001 World Championships in Oslo.

The FIS Council decided at its spring meeting in Vancouver on June 12th not to include a ladies team event to the program of the Nordic World Ski Championships 2011 in Oslo.

With that decision the FIS Council declined a suggestion by the hosting Norwegian Ski Association who really wanted to celebrate the first ladies team championships ever.

According to the council’s official press release, the sport is not yet sufficiently developed in terms of numbers and performance to merit a team event in 2011.
