|FIL disassociates itself from "Initiative Olympics natural track luge" by Helmut G.|
FIL. During the past few months, officials and Executive Board members of the International Luge Federation (FIL) have been the target of serious offences spread by Helmut G. from South Tyrol/Italy in several e-mails sent throughout the world regarding "natural track luge and Olympics". The FIL firmly rejects the wrong statements published in these e-mails.
Together with a colleague from Germany, Helmut G. furthermore operated a private website, which was mainly intended to promote the collection of signatures. The term "olympia" as well as the Olympic rings were used illegally on this website. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the German Olympic Sports Federation (DOSB) reacted quickly interdicting the use of the protected term and the Olympic rings by threat of punishment. The fact that the website also contained a clearly visible link to a commercial site of a sled shop further incriminates the operators of the website.
The FIL thinks that these unauthorized actions damage its international esteem and its efforts for natural track luge and disassociates itself explicitly from the activities of Helmut G.
