This Friday at the party given in honour of the Olympic winners a suit named after Andrus Veerpalu will be opened in Reval Park Hotel&Casino. This is where the skiing hero would be able to stay free of charge whenever he is in Tallinn.

The party starting at 8 p.m. in Reval Park Hotel&Casino will also stage the premiere of two songs dedicated to the Estonian sports heroes. The songs written and recorded by musician Jaan Kirss were inspired by the gold winning performances by Kristina Šmigun and Andrus Veerpalu. The limited edition CD-s with the songs are also set up as prizes in the raffle.

The suit named after Andrus Veerpalu in Reval Park Hotel&Casino is located on the seventh floor of the hotel and has been recently renovated. The suit is open for other hotel visitors also, but in the event of prior notice it is reserved for Andrus Veerpalu and his family. The contract for free of charge use of the suit will be concluded with the skier for ten years. Andrus's wife and children have also promised to attend the opening ceremony of the suit tomorrow.

The other prize to be presented – the travel check for a luxurious week-end in Las Vegas, was announced by Olympic Casino on the day when Kristina won her second gold medal in Torino.
