Innerhofer takes silver, Italy's first medal of the Games in Sochi, celebrating with Ferrari
It was an emotional moment with a silver lining as Christof Innerhofer brought home the first medal for Italy in the XXII Winter Olympic Games in the opening round of the alpine skiing programme. A fabulous descent, nearing perfection at the start, which only missed out on being gold by a six hundredth of a minute. The best way to celebrate a well-deserved medal was a Jeroboam Ferrari, the official bubbles for all the toasts at Casa Italia.
