Biathlete of the national team of Italy and Lukas Hofer shared his opinion about his prospects after the quarantine.
“You can’t prepare for the season if he starts in November and you will start training only in September. We all know that over the summer you need to spend roughly 800 hours of training, and add to it the shooting. That’s 15 thousand shots you have to make. Without fire, without training, without rollers, without skis on the glaciers we have no chance even with someone to fight. Especially given what we see in Norway, Sweden, Finland. Athletes still skiing. They are very lucky. Apparently, they have special problems with virus no.
So they can train while I’m sitting at home. I hope that in the coming weeks I will still be able to go outside. Yes, even just because I need some fresh air. I need to get out. If I sit around for a few days, you will really go crazy. It is clear that it is very important to be at home, but personally I’d settle for permission just to go out and have some run. It would be fine. But I, like everyone else, you sit and wait,” said Hofer.
