Olympic Casino, a sponsor of the Estonian Olympic Committee (EOC), makes the skier Kristina Shmigun, who has won two gold medals for Estonia at the Olympic games and whose many sports achievements have delighted us, a gift of a luxurious weekend in Las Vegas, the Mecca of Entertainment.
Besides accommodation in a luxury hotel, the weekend includes also tickets to a Celin Dion concert, which will be held at the exclusive Caesar’s Palace casino concert hall. The weekend is for two and Kristina has the option to choose the time of the trip.

Mr Armin Karu, Olympic Casino’s Chairman of Management Board, said that the company has supported Estonian Olympic movement for the last five years. Kristina’s spirited climb to the world’s highest skiing top deserves a special award. “I know that Kristina has spent her summer holidays in the USA for several years now, although she has not yet visited Las Vegas,” said Mr Karu. “We aim at offering her a relaxing and memorable weekend.”
