Federico Pellegrino is one of the Italian cross-country skiers selected for the World Cup in Östersund, Sweden.

Östersund, Sweden, is the place for the third stage of this year’s cross-country skiing World Cup. The event starts on Saturday, December 9, with a sprint in classic technique, followed by a 10km interval start race in freestyle technique on Sunday, December 10.

In a press release, the Italian Ski Association has named their cross-country ski team for the upcoming World Cup premiere in Östersund. Italy will start with 9 athletes. On the women’s side, Italy will start with 3 skiers. Already on the men’s side, 6 athletes will start for the European country.

According to the press release, “Federico Pellegrino returns to strengthen the Italian cross-country skiing team ahead of the Östersund stage. The Aosta Valley champion missed the two days in Gällivare, taking the opportunity to spend some time with his family and above all train for a season that will not allow him breaks,” and continues:

“Pellegrino will find a team that has performed well, especially on the men’s side, in competitions in Swedish Lapland. The very young Barp and Graz specially made a good impression, but comforting news came from De Fabiani, who appeared to be improving after the physical problems that had limited him to Ruka. Completing the men’s group will be Simone Daprà and Paolo Ventura. There are always three women present: Caterina Ganz, Francesca Franchi, and Anna Comarella.”
