Marc Girardelli will grudgingly put in an appearance at the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer next February just to keep his sponsors happy. Having won more alpine World Cup titles - five - than anyone else, Girardelli, who was born in Austria but races for Luxembourg, said he lacks goals. 'The only reason I will go to the Olympics is because my sponsors want me to make it,' he said in an interview in Nakiska, Alberta, the site of the 1988 Calgary Winter Games. 'I'm not interested in the Olympics.'
