Cross country champ Cologna returns to training

23 year-old Dario Cologna, the reining World Cup cross-country overall champion, has resumed his training on snow following more than a month off. The Swiss Ski Federation said this morning in an Associated Press wire story from Bern, that Cologna hopes to begin the defense of his first-ever World Cup overall title on home snows when the tour reaches Davos, SUI on Dec 12-13. Davos, long a mainstay on the world cup calendar is the fourth stop on the four-month world cup schedule.

Swiss nordic ski fans, took a long, hard breath when they learned that Cologna had injured muscles in his right thigh in sprint training last month. Cologna, according to the AP, got back on his skis two weeks ahead of his planned return schedule. He is currently training with his team at Schnalstal, ITA. The Swiss squad will spend most of November in a training camp at Sjusjoen, Norway.
