I am returning home from the USA and will not go to the World Games in Canada this weekend due to covid, which I contracted in the USA during the World Games in Snowshoe, wrote Cink about his absence in Mont-Sainte-Anne.

The native of Rokycan took 12th place in the fifth short track in Snowshoe, but did not participate in Sunday’s Olympic cross country race due to health reasons.

However, Cink is not going to do well this season. In the year before the World Cup, he suffered from allergies, and due to illness, he missed the World Cup in Lenzerheide with the Reds. There are thirty-two of them in the series.

This year is really hard for me, but I will fight. Now I have to recover from covid and then I will try to prepare as best as possible for the world and European championships, said Cink, but at the end of the competition on the home track in Stupn, he became the national champion.

The continental championship in cross country will be held on August 19 and 20 in the framework of the multi-sport EC in Munich, and the world medal will be fought for a week later in Les Gets.
