Alpine Skiing 2020 - 2021 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, Alpine Worlds in March after the Olympics is just a very bad idea. It's the same nonsense as having figure skating Worlds after the Olympics every time. Several Olympic medallists just doesn't bother to show up.

some skiers are starting to show their disappointment for the Italian Ski federation's decision to postpone the 2021 Worlds...

 

Federica Brignone is the first among the top class skiers to get loud against this chance, especially if they really want to hold that event just a few weeks after the Olympics...

 

I expect many more to come in the next few days...

 

p.s. the final decision about the 2021 Worlds being delayed to March 2022 is expected to be taken next July, 1st at the next FIS Meet...

To be fair, I don't think anyone wants to be in a situation where it has to be postponed, but choices like that aren't really a luxury they often have these days..skiers can be angry and disappointment all they want (and rightly so), the national sports federations aren't the ones said disappointments should be aimed at in this case.

I still don't understand, why the championships should already be postponed in July. Shouldn't one at least wait until September or October to see how the situation develops.

It's quite obvious that certain authorities have infos that we don't know...

 

p.s. tbh, I can understand them thinking there's no chance to have a full audience event in the next 9/12 months here in Italy...and I also understand why the organizers are opting for this strategy (they already lost a big amount of money with the world cup finals cancellation earlier this year and they want to be absolutely sure they're not going to lose money again in 2021)...

Yeah, I think everyone has now given in to the fact that as long as there is no vaccine, we will live in uncertainty.

 

While there is a chance that the virus will be at bay come February, I'm afraid it will more likely be the opposite. COVID can survive summer heat, but I'm guessing it will spread more efficiently once people start spending more time indoors during Fall and Winter...
