Many Changes To The Swedish Team For The World Cup In Falun

The cross-country skiing World Cup heads to Falun in Sweden after thrilling sprint races at the Drammen World Cup. After being presented earlier this week, the Swedish Ski Association has announced many changes to the World Cup team.

William Poromaa is one of the Swedish skiers not starting at the World Cup in Falun.

Falun, Sweden, is the place for this weekend’s cross-country skiing World Cup, with a 10km individual classic race on Friday, a freestyle sprint on Saturday, and a mixed relay on Sunday. 

In a press release, the Swedish Ski Association has announced a significant update in the Team for Falun.

Ebba Andersson and Frida Karlsson have decided not to start in the competitions this weekend, as both are still not ready to compete due to cold symptoms. William Poromaa, who also had a cold, has yet to be ready for competition. 

Johan Häggström has mild cold symptoms and will not start the sprint on Saturday. Anna Dyvik is not starting in Falun as she has back pain and will avoid a heavier load as a precaution. 

Maja Dahlqvist will not start the 10km race and instead focus on Saturday’s sprint. 

New athletes joining the Team will be Lisa Ingesson, Josehanna Lundgren Wikström, Lovisa Modig, and Simon Andersson. In addition to the new skiers, Louise Lindström, Truls Gisselman, and Gustaf Berglund will start the sprints, and Johanna Hagström will start Friday’s 10km race.

“Right now, we have many people who have or have had a cold and are not quite ready for competition yet. Unfortunately, so many strong names are forced to sit out when exciting competitions are expected in Falun with fantastic home audiences. It’s tough decisions to make, and many have hoped it would be possible to compete, but now we get the opportunity to give more skiers a chance to compete in the World Cup on home soil,” says National Team Manager Anders Byström.
