Thobias Montler: "Obviously it will be a shock"


One of Sweden's big jumps at the indoor Nanjing World Cup in March had been the long jump runner Thobias Montler, 23. Now the championship is canceled due to the corona virus. - Damn. Obviously it will be a shock, but at the same time it is nice that you do not test if they feel it is a risk, Montler tells SVT Sport.

The indoor World Cup in China had ended an unusually long indoor season for Montler.

- It is something that is in my competition planning and something that I have invested in. It has a great impact on the fact that the indoor season had been considerably longer with an indoor World Cup. We have planned to be up until mid-March and some more. Now we will have to make a decision about having to change this with training and camps, ”says Montler.

Montler started the season nicely in Malmö on Sunday with a jump that measured the entire 8.10 meters.

- It would have been my first indoor World Cup, so it is clear that it is sad that it will not be lost.

- It feels good that they make a decision so early that you can change the placement. Obviously it feels safe to make such a decision, but at the same time it is very sad that it will not be lost.
