There is currently a lot of resistance forming before the two World Cup slaloms of the alpine ski racers on the weekend in Levi, Finland:

Because the entire Swedish ski team has to be in isolation because of a positive corona test, the criticism of the decision is getting louder and louder.

“What are we all being tested for?” Wrote the overall World Cup winner Federica Brignone from Italy Instagram. “How can it be that all athletes in a nation (who are all negative in three tests) are not allowed to race because of a positive coach? Is that fair?”

This is precisely the crucial question with regard to an unequal treatment of the sports, especially since such situations, for example in ball sports, have so far had no consequences, and in an individual case by no means an entire team is sanctioned.

Brignone therefore asked the question: “Why is it allowed to continue playing in football where there is physical contact between the players, even if there are some positive cases? Please give us clear and equal rules.”

Several German athletes like Linus Straßer, Kira Weidle and Stefan Luitz shared Brignone’s contribution.

France’s ski star Alexis Pinturault also supported Brignone’s criticism: If the current approach of involving the whole team in a single Corona case remains, “then I’ll miss competitions too. That is not only likely, but certain,” said the 29-year-old. Yearlings.

Pinturault added that he himself as well as Brignone and the Norwegian overall World Cup winner Aleksander Aamodt Kilde had already been infected with corona – and should therefore actually have antibodies.

“The organizers have to revise their schedules,” affirmed Pinturault Ski Chrono. The consequences for the sporting competition would otherwise be obvious: “That affects the chances enormously”, the Frenchman alluded to Swenn-Larsson, who would now remain without points from the two races in Levi.
