ST. MORITZ, Switzerland -- Gian Franco Kasper has been to every Winter Olympics in his lifetime, since the five-ring circus came to his town St. Moritz in 1948, one week after his fourth birthday. Now 68, the International Ski Federation president is helping to try to bring back the games in 2022 as part of a planned joint bid with another ritzy Alpine resort, Davos. The project is, he acknowledges, intensely personal to make St. Moritz the first three-time Winter Games host. "My grandfather was involved in 1928, and my father was president -- though not for the whole time -- of the 48 Olympics," Kasper told The Associated Press in an interview. "It would be extremely important to me. Its my hometown and my wish, of course." Kasper outlined the Davos-St. Moritz proposal as the near neighbours enjoyed their weekend in the international spotlight. While Davos hosted global powerbrokers at the annual World Economic Forum, St. Moritz staged World Cup races in Alpine skiing -- arguably the Winter Olympics signature sport -- and luge. Kasper believes both towns offer the secure, high-class hosting required for a two-week sports festival. "You need the comfort of the big city but preferably without the city -- and that is what you have in those places," said the 12-year member of the International Olympic Committee, which will choose the 2022 venue. The mountainside towns aim to capture the intimacy of Lillehammer in Norway, the picturesque and popular Winter Games host in 1994. By comparison, big-city 2010 host Vancouver was 90 minutes travel from snow and sliding sports venues in Whistler, while 2014 host Sochi is a Black Sea summer resort with a subtropical climate. "I hear so many colleagues saying we have to go back to normal size, we have to go back to winter," said Kasper. "To go to capital cities, it doesnt give you the right ambiance." Kasper conceived the bid idea with fellow Swiss Rene Fasel, the International Ice Hockey Federation president who represents winter sports on the IOCs ruling board. Around 100 IOC voters might yet be easy to persuade in a poll scheduled in 2015, when Swiss members cant take part. Nor will voters from rival candidate nations which could include Kazakhstan, Spain and Ukraine. Still, the Davos-St. Moritz team has a battle to win before even getting to Olympic election day. In November, a referendum of almost 200 districts in the canton (state) of Graubunden will decide whether a formal bid is launched. Kasper knows his people well -- "my familys been here 400 years" -- and hes cautious about a possible opposition alliance of farmers, environmentalists and socialists. "This will be very difficult," he said. "Why should the people of Arosa or Laax or Flims say, We shall spend our tax money for the rich people in St. Moritz? "If they say no, that is the end of it." Another concern is that a mid-February Olympics would make Davos unable to host the World Economic Forum in its usual slot, and perhaps it would not return. A yes vote will prompt an expected 40 million Swiss francs (US$44 million) candidacy, funded equally by local residents, national authorities and private backing. "40 million? A banker gets that in a few months," said Kasper, who was noted for easygoing dry humour. Kasper said a successful bid would likely mean both St. Moritz and Davos get new ice stadiums and Olympic villages. "They all need apartments for the local people. There will be no so-called white elephants, for sure not," he said. In fact, many 1948 venues familiar to Kaspers father would be used with some renovations, including the ski jumping hill. Kasper is a veteran of 17 consecutive Winter Olympics. "My father took me along in 52 (staged in Oslo) and 56 (Cortina dAmpezzo, Italy) and then I had my own jobs. I think I have probably the highest number. Ive seen enough!" Still, one more at home would be nice. Adidas Zx 700 w Schoenen. - Bryan Price sat down in the cushy chair.

Ricciardos exclusion from the results tarnished what had been a day of celebration for local fans, who were jubilant that the Red Bull driver had apparently become the first Australian to finish on the podium at his home race. However just before midnight, stewards ruled that Ricciardos car had "exceeded consistently the maximum allowed fuel flow" and that the team refused an instruction from the races technical delegate Charlie Whiting to change the fuel-flow sensor before the race and a further request during the race to reduce the fuel flow.

John Fox joined the players and coaches for their post-practice huddle on the football field Thursday. Amid hails, hugs and handshakes, he told them how thankful he was for his health, their hard work and his good friend Del Rio for running things while he was recovering from open-heart surgery. "I believe there couldnt have been a better message on a better day," safety David Bruton said. Of course, Fox also took the opportunity to do some coaching, imploring his players to focus on beating Kansas City this weekend so that when he officially returns to work Monday, hell have a first-place team awaiting him. It hasnt been determined whether Fox will coach from the sideline or the booth for his first game back, when the Broncos host the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 8. The team issued a statement Thursday saying that "while no formal restrictions will be placed on his workload upon his return, he will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as his well-being remains our No. 1 priority." Its been less than a month since Fox had his heart operation. Team owner Pat Bowlen sent his private jet to Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday to bring Fox and his wife, Robin, back to Denver. Fox had been recuperating at his off-season home after aortic valve replacement surgery Nov. 4. Del Rio said he invited Fox to drop by the office Thanksgiving morning so that the entire team wouldnt have to show up at the Fox house for turkey dinner. "It was great to see (him) and very fitting on a day like today when were all kind of taking a pause and taking a break and giving thanks," Del Rio said. Fox will stay back in Denver when the Broncos visit Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for an AFC West showdown between 9-2 teams that could go a long way in determining playoff positioning.dddddddddddd Del Rio has gone 2-1 in Foxs absence. Fox has actually been back coaching for a while. He and Del Rio talk every day, and he even Skyped his players during a team meeting last week. He was breaking down plays upon his release from the hospital, and on Wednesday quarterback Peyton Manning said theyve communicated "a healthy amount" over the last three weeks. His return was first reported by Fox Sports. About a week after the surgery, Fox said on a conference call with reporters that he was born with a bicuspid aortic valve, one that has only two leaflets instead of the usual three. The aortic valve regulates blood flow from the heart into the aorta, the major blood vessel that brings blood into the body. He said it was discovered in 1997 when a murmur showed up in a physical while he was the Giants defensive co-ordinator. He was told earlier this year that surgery was necessary, but he had hoped to delay the operation until after the Super Bowl. That changed when he almost passed out Nov. 2 while golfing in Charlotte, two days after hed visited his cardiologist in Raleigh. Less than 48 hours later, he had surgery, and he was released from the hospital four days after that. He said the typical hospital stay for such surgeries is five to seven days. He also noted that he was "very, very healthy," saying his heart condition was more of a birth defect than the result of any poor lifestyle choices or too much stress. He pledged then get back to work by seasons end. Tight end Jacob Tamme called it a "pretty cool Thanksgiving treat to have him back and see how happy he was to be back." "I mean, its killing him (to be away)," Tamme said. "He loves it, man. He loves being around this group and we love having him here. So it was pretty awesome." Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
