The Swedish team is suffering losses from Covid and related situation. Three Swedish biathletes were in contact with patients with covid. Because of this, they will miss the Antholz. We are talking about Viktor Brandt, Emil Nykvist and Felicia Lindqvist.
Moreover, these three athletes passed negative tests, but due to contact with the patient, they were placed in quarantine. The Swedish national team can make changes, but if they fail, the women's team simply will not be able to compete in the relay, since at the moment only Mona Brorsson, Johanna Scottheim and Ingela Andersson remain in the squad.
