Congress Information

5th Christiania (NOR) 1914

5th International Ski Congress: 27th to 28th February 1914 – Christiania (NOR)

17 delegates from 10 countries

- Hassa Horn (NOR) becomes President of the CIS.
- The German delegate suggests for the first time that skiing be included on the Olympic programme. Carl Hellberg (SWE) opposes this plan, which had already been envisaged and rejected by the authorities in his country.

Thus the question is put back to the next Congress planned for 1915 at Salzburg (AUT). However, war leads to its cancellation.
