The only national team who will practice during the EHF week despite the cancelation of all activities due coronavirus threat will be the Russian:
- Of course, we take into account that we do not need to go to Hungary. But we will practice, as planned, a week. Beginners were invited to this training camp, I wanted them to get acquainted with how the national team works and what requirements we set.
The whole coronavirus situation has broken the usual sports calendars. In my homeland in Spain, there is a very alarming situation, many people are sick, people are dying, medicine is doing a great job, a state of emergency has been introduced. In Russia, this is not. In a situation where the international calendar for the coming weeks is actually cancelled, I really want the domestic competitions, championship and Cup of Russia to end without problems. In this case, when the situation on the continent normalizes, it will be easier for the national team to prepare for the European selection and Olympic qualifications, and Rostov-Don for the Champions League games – said coach Ambros Martin for the Federation’s website.
