SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ A delegation from Salt Lake City's Olympic organizing committee is heading to Turin, Italy, to help with preparations for the 2006 Winter Games.
It's the second formal ``transfer of knowledge'' session set up by the International Olympic Committee to help organizers of future Olympics learn from their predecessors.
Twenty-five meetings have been scheduled over four days between the Salt Lake Organizing Committee and Italian Olympic leaders.
SLOC staff members will distribute statistics and reports on all aspects of Olympics preparations.
Turin organizers and the IOC are paying SLOC's expenses.
