(AP Photo/Gabriele Facciotti)CORTINA D'AMPEZZO – CORTINA D'When Cortina's century-old bobsled track closed for financial reasons 13 years ago, the adjacent coffee bar kept on serving espressos. Or the days when his brother would drive him down the twisty track in a two-man bobsled. A spectacle that locals hope can be rekindled for the 2026 Milan-Cortina Olympics. Ad“You’ve got to build tracks where there’s some sort of tradition,” said Gianfranco Rezzadore, the president of the Bob Club Cortina. “This,” said Costantini, the Bob Bar owner, “is a golden chance.”___AP Sports Writer Graham Dunbar in Geneva contributed to this report.
