ICÍAR OCHOA DE OLANO
The world of sport and Spanish skiing in particular is mourning the death of Olympic medallist Blanca Fernández Ochoa. The discovery of the former skier's body in the Sierra de Guadarrama on Wednesday brought an end to three days' intensive ... her family, who never let themselves lose heart. Apart from being an expert skier, she was an experienced hiker and knew these mountains perfectly. She often used to go there alone and sleep outdoors. Sadly, though, when they found her she was dead.
