First Norwegian troop in place in China

The first contingent of Norwegian, Swedish and Danish practitioners and leaders landed in Beijing early Friday Norwegian time. An extensive infection control apparatus met them.

There are chaotic conditions for Norwegian, Danish and Swedish Olympic athletes, support staff, coaches and the press at the baggage claim at the airport in Beijing. Biathletes Tiril Eckhoff and Marte Olsbu Røiseland are trying to get on the right bus to Zhangjiakou.

Preparations for the Olympics in China have largely been marked by the corona pandemic and the fear of becoming infected just before the Games start.

Almost the entire Norwegian cross-country national team has had to postpone the trip due to cases of infection that occurred during the altitude gathering in Seiser Alm in Italy.

The organizers of the Olympics have implemented comprehensive measures to prevent the competitions from next week from being characterized by cases of infection.

No cases of infection were reported among those who were on the plane from Oslo on Thursday night.
