According to this week´s decision of the government of Finland, inner and outdoor sports grounds are opened in a controlled way beginning from 1 June. That means that next month, all skating teams should have the opportunity to skate again.
Finland has coped fairly well with this corona crisis so far. In the country, there have been about 5,500 diagnosed infections and about 250 deads. The schools, libraries, museums and restaurants have been closed and most people who normally work in the offices have been working at home.
Finland slowly reopen
Now the corona situation seems to be in quite good control so society will reopen gradually. From the beginning of June, and due to the gatherings restriction up to 50 people, the synchro athletes will have the long-awaited opportunity to start again the practice with the full team.
The teams are eagerly waiting for detailed information about the rules of the June training and now the future seems much lighter than for many weeks before this.
If everything proceeds well, maybe we can begin to dream about Finlandia Trophy in October?
