Biathlon: Preuss suffers from corona after-effects

The German biathlon medal hope Franziska Preuss is still struggling with the health consequences more than two weeks after her corona infection.

“Franzi is not doing so well yet. She still has minor problems with her corona infection,” said women’s trainer Kristian Mehringer on “ZDF”: “She’s not in training yet, too bad.”

Preuss was infected with the corona virus shortly before the turn of the year, and time is short less than four weeks before the Olympic Games in Beijing (February 4 to 20). “To be honest, I was very depressed for the first few days,” the 27-year-old said recently: “But now I’m more optimistic again and I’m trying to make the best of the situation.”

Mehringer hopes “that things will improve in the next few days and that she can get back into training,” he said. At this point in time, Preuss cannot think about competitions. A return to the Olympic dress rehearsal in Antholz next week (January 20th to 23rd) seems almost impossible.
