The anticipation of the Winter Olympics of Germany’s currently best figure skating couple Minerva Hase and Nolan Seegert is also accompanied by worries and uncertainty.
“We’re trying to get to China without Corona,” said Seegert in the podcast of the Berlin Olympic base and the “Berliner Morgenpost”, “we don’t want to describe anything yet.”
The 22-year-old bunny and her partner, who is seven years older, need two negative PCR tests before they leave their training location in Sochi, Russia, for Beijing on Monday, where the Berliners want to start their competition on the opening day next Friday. The two athletes travel to China with double FFP2 mask protection.
“We have the feeling that we are even safer,” said Hase. Seegert added: “We’ve become very paranoid about it.”
Only after arriving in the Olympic bubble do the German champions expect the uncertainty to subside. The fact that no spectators are allowed to attend the competitions is of secondary importance for the couple when they participate in the Olympics for the first time, since neither of them knows any other games.
“In the end, the Olympic Games will remain the Olympic Games,” said Hase, “this time the basic idea might count even more.”
