Project Sochi 2014
What is this project about?
We are Tanja Kolbe and Stefano Caruso, a young ice dance couple, on our way to the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi 2014.
Our goal is to realize a great performance, skating with heart and placing as high as possible for our nation: Germany.
In order to reach our goal is always absolutely necessary our full commitment everyday BUT we also need your help and your support to improve. Help us pulling through difficulties which are getting on our way!
Why are we asking you to suppor our project?
We need your economic support, also if is little, to allow us the best preparation possible for this incoming Olympic Season. We are putting so much effort in our dream, Stefano passed all the citizienship tests and since September 3rd he became German citizen and we already scored the points needed in order to compete at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
We have a great training facilities both in Berlin (Germany) and in Milan (Italy) and our coaches are guiding us with love and with knowledge. Barbara Fusar Poli, World and European Figure Skating Champion, Renè Lhose, bronze medalist in World Championship 2004, Igor Shpilband, ex-ballerina Jutta Deutschland, the choreographer Corrado Giordani working in “La Scala” Theatre in Milan and Mr. Martin Skotnicky, head coach of the German Federation. All those fantastic people and coaches are helping us finding the perfection on the ice but, as you can understand, all of this have some costs.
Ice dancing is a marvellous sport, elengant, but very expensive. The German Federation (DEU) is providing us the best he can but some costs are, unfortunately, out of the budget and our family is helping filling this gap. We also have some help through Deutsche Sporthilfe, Getranke Hoffman and Bundeswehr (German army) but it doesn't cover all our monthly expenses.
This season will be a speacial season for us, Grand Prix in Tokyo, German National Championship in Berlin (Germany), European Championship in Budapest (Hungary), World Championship in Saitama (Japan) and Winter Olympic Games in Sochi (Russia). We are working hard to be fully prepared for all this event.
That’s why we are asking for your help, to be a part of our dream and our success! We will not disappoint you!
Which are our goals?
Our short term goal is to partecipate at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 but our long term goal is to improve year after year to reach the highest position in Europe and in the World. For this reason we are working everyday with dedication.
