Cortina Winter Polo Audi Gold Cup 2012
From 19 February 2012 to 25 February 2012
This years tournament, scheduled for the final week of the Carnival, will take place from 19 to 25 February in the usual location of the frozen lake of Misurina, purposely transformed into a playing field. After being added to the World Polo Tour, which also includes the Swiss St. Moritz and the Argentinean Snow Cup tournaments, the event has deservedly gained the status of not-to-be-missed top event in the international scene.
The matches and the entertainment area will be located at 1800m in a postcard setting, with the backdrop of Mt. Sorapis and the Three Lavaredo Peaks, one of the most celebrated sceneries of the Ampezzo Dolomites, where glamour and high society are the fundamental ingredients of the activities that are planned both on- and off the slopes of Cortina dAmpezzo.
The combination, in a perfect union of glamour, sport, hospitality and excellence is a guarantee of a unique exhibition which is known all around the world for an ever increasing number of guests.
This year a dense calendar of side events has been planned in order to get spectators more involved in this fascinating tournament - a week in the name of great entertainment with events taking place at Misurina and Cortina.
The first team confirming their participation to the 2012 edition is the one captained by Luca DOrazio and Rommy Gianni. A regular protagonist as well as the winner of the last edition, Luca DOrazio considers this event a compulsory stage amongst his sport engagements. This year wearing the jersey of the Audi Polo team, DOrazio is presenting himself as the real protagonist after winning the previous two events after Cortina Forte dei Marmi (polo on the beach) and Rome.
