A wave of indignation Gian Franco Kasper has caused with his statements in an Interview with tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet. In digital and printed Form, it has captured the entire German-speaking area and is now expected to crest at more countries overlap. The President of the International ski Federation FIS provided with his statements – "there is no evidence" (to climate change), or "in dictatorships, it is easier for us" (occasions orientation of places of Sport such as the Olympic Games) – for a number of headlines.
"On to the dictator!" was, for example, the title of a commentary in the "Frankfurter Allgemeine". The TV-station RTL chose the title "Incredible statements of a sports official" and added, questioning "How to Trump: global warming". The Austrian daily newspaper "der Standard" was the headline: "The Lord of the skiing thread again".

The International Olympic Committee (IOC), in which Kasper from 2000 to 2018 participated, and since his Amtsende honorary member, distanced himself from the statements of the Engadiners to the winter Olympics in dictatorships. "This is the personal opinion of Gian Franco Kasper, which is not shared by the IOC", said an IOC spokesperson in various media. Also, the doubts of the 75-Year-old to global warming, with statements such as "We have snow, very much", commented on the panel: "The sustainability and climate change are the Central points of the work in the IOC."
"it makes me really scared"
Daniel Yule took no sheet before the mouth. The Swiss ski racer shows to the "view" concern: "Some of the statements of the President have shocked." The Valais finds it questionable that Kasper sets the Kilmawandel in question: "This statement is for me a proof of how far Mr Kasper has of our Sport. When he would visit us only once per summer in the snow Training, then he would recognize how strong our glaciers are receding and how strong is the future of skiing, therefore, is at risk."

The 25-Year-old, studying, in addition to his career in the ski business, he says Kaspers dictatorships-quotes: "With this commitment to the dictatorship of Mr. Kasper makes it clear that he wants to lead as President, no dialogue with us. It makes me really scared, after all, I am running in the FIS for the Position as the athlete-speaker." In addition, Yule is upset because the FIS President because of an "age of the guillotine" (the club head from the 70. Age of votes excluded) in the IOC do not have the right to vote. "The skiing, the lack of global recognition, we are struggling to Survive. Therefore, we would have a voice at the largest sports Association in the world, now particularly needed," said the Slalom specialist.
