Anne Kjersti Kalvå (NOR).

A new case of Covid has now been detected in the Norwegian team at the Tour de Ski. On Thursday, Anne Kjersti Kalvå tested positive. She was in third place overall after four of seven stages.

“Anne Kjersti Kalvå had to abandon Tour de Ski. She, unfortunately, tested positive for Covid after the competition in Oberstdorf yesterday and traveled home to Trondheim today,” according to a press release from the Norwegian Ski Association. 

Kalvå is the second in the Norwegian team to test positive for Covid. Women’s national team coach Sjur Ole Svarstad also tested positive earlier this week. National team doctor Over fears there could be more cases.

“It is boring that illness has occurred. It affects us all and creates uncertainty, even if it has been there since the first case. We are in a vulnerable period with a lot of infection in society,” says Feragen to TV2

Very Unfortunate For Kalvå

Kalvå was in third place overall in the Tour de Ski after four of seven stages and was one of the strongest candidates for the overall podium before she had to leave the Tour.  

Last year, her Olympic dream was ruined when she tested positive for Covid just before the national team’s departure to China. 

She struggled with the disease for a long time and has worked hard to return. So far this year, Kalvå has impressed in the World Cup and had the World Championships as the big goal this season. The question is whether Kalvå can return to top form for the Worlds.

Today is a rest day in the Tour de Ski. Tomorrow, one of the last three stages starts in Val di Fiemme, Italy.

See below the complete program for the Tour de Ski 2022/2023.
