I was part of the OlympicWinter Games in 1976 in Innsbruck,when I was working as a recording clerk at theathletes' registration desk and it was a very emotionalexperience. Furthermore, it will be a perfect opportunityto leave Milan for a bit. I grew up in Austria but havebeen living in Italy for quite some time. The YOG are agreat chance for me to spend some time in my homecountry, to meet old friends and make new ones.
