Frida Karlsson to Miss Final 30km at the Beijing Olympics

Frida Karlsson speaks out about the collapse during the Olympics in Beijing.

Swedish cross-country star Frida Karlsson will not race the 30-kilometer skate race on Sunday, which is the final cross-country event at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. 

Coming into the Beijing Olympics as one of the favorites to the medals in the distance events, the 22-year-old has had a rough time in Zhangjiakou. 

Karlsson was fifth at the 15-kilometer skiathlon, but finished 42.5 seconds behind gold medal winner Therese Johaug. In the 10-kilometer classic event, she was 12th, nearly a minute and a half behind Johaug. 

Considering Karlsson’s performances at the Beijing Olympics, and her condition after those events, the Swedish medical team and coaching staff have not named her to the team for the 30-kilometer. 

“The medical assessment is that she needs more recovery. She could race the 30-kilometer, but our opinion is that it is better for her to sit out the event in a long-term perspective,” says Jan Wall, head physician in the Swedish national team. 

Conditions for the 30-kilometer skate race on Sunday are expected to be particularly brutal: frigid temperatures combined with high altitude and a grueling course make the 30-kilometer in Zhangjiakou one of the most demanding skate marathons ever. 

“The team selection is based on an overall assessment of the racer’s fitness and condition at this point, and recovery is a major part of the decision,” says Sweden’s national team director Anders Byström. 

This is Sweden’s team to the 30-kiometer skate event at the Beijing Olympics

The women’s 30-kilometer skate race is a mass start event, and takes place at 7:30 am on Sunday, February 20. Check out the start lists and race details
