Albania receives a gold medal in skiing! Lara Colturi is declared world champion in Austria
Lara Colturi, who represents Albania in the world ski championship, received the gold medal.
The Italian skier with an Albanian passport competed in the World Youth Championship in St. Anton, Austria and was declared world champion.
The 16-year-old left behind the Swiss Grob and the Italian Calaba, who were ranked second and third.
Prime Minister Edi Rama reacted with a post on social networks, where he writes:
Lara Colturi, who was naturalized Albanian because she is in love with Albania as a family, has just been declared the WORLD CHAMPION for young women in Skiing.
When she passionately told me why she wanted to become Albanian, she ended it with the words, "I want to bring gold medals to Albania" and today Lara brought our country the first gold medal in skiing.
