We are only one month away from the start of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, scheduled from 12 to 28 February, but Rudy Project is already celebrating its first victory.
Indeed, Rudy Project champion Giorgio Di Centa, gold winner in the 50km and the 4x10 km relay at the Torino 2006 Olympics, and standard bearer of the light blue flag in Canada, will be representing Italy at the opening ceremony. And at the Headquarters, the company has already set its sights on repeating the successes of 2006. Rudy Project won 45 medals at the Turin games (18 gold, 13 silver and 14 bronze), an extremely impressive result for the company that competed alongside over 180 athletes from every nation.
Rudy Project will be participating at the 21st Winter Olympics with athletes from various countries, including Germany, Finland, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Spain and, naturally, Italy. As well as Giorgio Di Centa, among the other famous names of cross-country ski are the likes of Arianna Follis, Marianna Longa and Cristian Zorzi, René Sommerfeld and Alex Teichmann from Germany, and Anna Haag and Norgrenn Britta from Sweden. And then there is the twice-Olympic speed skating champion Enrico Fabris and German champion Michael Rösch, who rose to the first step of the podium in the 4x7.5 km relay at Torino 2006.
News has leaked out that the athletes’ favourite Rudy Project model will be Noyz Fluo. With its easily recognisable technicoloured-look, the model can be used with both the special ImpactX sun lenses and ImpactRX vision-sun lenses. The exceptional technical characteristics guarantee exceptional performance in terms of efficiency, comfort and safety, even for athletes that require corrective lenses, who are now finally free to concentrate 100% on the race.
