Fraction of Triglav glacier to travel to Beijing Olympics

Ljubljana, 3 December - The Slovenian Olympic Committee (OKS) has given up on the idea to have a Slovenian House set up in Beijing as part of promotional activities during the 2022 Winter Olympics due to the coronavirus. It has instead decided to take some ice from the Triglav glacier to China as part of an environmental project focussing on global warming.
