14.30 the ladies' sprint starts in Oberhof.

During the morning, however, the news came that Johanna Skottheim was giving up the competition due to illness.

- That's right, says Mattias Nilsson, national coach, to SVT Sport.

However, it should not be about the corona without Skottheim feeling generally hung.

- We have just done a test, so it is not corona, says Mattias Nilsson.

Other ladies should be healthy and available to start.

On the men's side, Jesper Nelin is already ill with a sore throat, but corona should not be a factor there either.
