Coronavirussen continues to make life miserable for Danish cycling.
the OLYMPICS-the hope Jimmi Therkelsen and ungdomslandstræner in BMX, Nicklas Laustsen, are both smoked in the isolation of the private rooms at Hvidovre Hospital, after a flight, confirm communication and press officer in the DCU, Morten Anderson, to Ekstra Bladet.
This is because they have been sitting quite close to a coronasmittet person on a flight from Milan to Copenhagen after having been to the race in Portugal.
- They will fly home via Frankfurt, but the plane is cancelled, and then sent the via Milano. When they come home, they are contacted by the Danish national board of Health, because on the flight from Milan to Copenhagen has been a person who is found to be contaminated with corona. The person has been sitting within two rows of them, says Morten Anderson for the Extra Magazine.

Both are smoked in isolation at Hvidovre Hospital, above hjemmekarantæne, because they live together with other persons, who also were in quarantine, if they stayed in the home.
The coming 14 days they must be on the enestuerne, and it may have implications for Jimmi Therkelsens OLYMPIC dream, because forbederelserne for the upcoming WORLD cup, which also serves as the OLYMPIC qualification, will be destroyed.
- Jimmi should have been with Karly to Houston in training camp, because the WORLD cup is run on the track in Houston. The WORLD cup is the last major OLYMPIC qualifiers in BMX. The trip goes in the sink and his entire program will be pushed to 14 days.
- We hope that it is not ultimately affect too much, but it is clear, that it destroys the preparations. 14 days is a lot. It is the overriding aim is to qualify for the OLYMPICS, and playing the WORLD cup a key role, says Morten Anderson for the WORLD championships in BMX, which run from 26.-31. may.
