Emma Ribom of Sweden has tested positive for Covid-19 and will not be able to race the World Cup final on home turf in Falun this weekend.

Several of the Swedish racers who were named to the national team for the World Cup final in Falun have become sick. The result is a cascade of changes to the team lineup for the races on home turf this this weekend.

Emma Ribom won’t be racing the World Cup in Falun, as she is still testing positive for Covid-19. Moa Hansson will replace Ribom for the sprint on Friday, while Maja Dahlqvist takes Ribom’s spot in the 10km skate race on Saturday.  Emma Björklund steps into the national group in the sprint, and Elina Rönnlund in the skate race. 

Additionally, George Ersson, Johan Herbert and Jenny Solin have become sick. Gustaf Berglund will move up from the national group to the World Cup team to replace Ersson. Berglund will be replaced by Erik Silfver in the national group. Solin will be replaced by Evelina Settling, and Gustav Eriksson will replace Herbert.  

See the complete roster for all the events at the bottom of the story

As the hosts of the upcoming World Cup events this weekend, Sweden is allowed to field up to 12 racers men and 12 women in each event. 

The World Cup event in Falun on March 11 through 13 will be the last of the 2021-22 FIS Cross-Country World Cup season. The first day at the Falun World Cup features sprint races for both men and women, followed by 10km skate for women and 15km skate races on Saturday, and relays for both men and women on Sunday. 

2022 World Cup season cut short
Next week’s World Cup event in Falun will be the last of the 2022 season, as the FIS failed to find an alternate organizer for the World Cup final that was scheduled to take place in Tyumen, Russia, on March 18 to 20. 

FIS Cross-Country and various National Ski Federations have tried to find a possible replacement for the cancelled World Cup events in Tyumen, Russia, on March 18 to 20. 

The World Cup events in Tyumen were cancelled as a part of global sanctions placed on Russia and Belarus in response to the Russian invasion and the war in the Ukraine.
