I hope the restrictions work and case numbers come down quickly. That’s the most important thing. But it’s nice to know that Sondre will be able to keep training even without any competitions in the near future.
It would have been nice for his family to see him at World's. I hope he still can go to Worlds.Sondre lives in Oslo, but trains at a club outside Oslo, in Asker. It seemed the ice rink in Asker hasn´t been closed yet, but the ice rink in Oslo and some other areas had to close. I was really unsure though if he even could train in Asker since he lives in Oslo, because they don´t recommend travelling between areas to prevent the spreading. All though, according to recent storys it seems Sondre had some training at the rink, so hurray - it seems he hasn´t been affected yet. Some good news after all!
Sondre is still hooked on frozen lake skating, and he had great success with his post. He reached 1 million views on one of the post and 60 000 likes:
That is amazing!!
Also he has reached 10 700 followers on Instagram, which is quite good for a figure skater.
The spread in Norway now is very uncertain, it actually seems the spread is really under control and numbers are decreasing because of the measures, at the same time, they have detected more mutant cases, and it could be in the way of being the dominant type. All though, it seems it´s under control for now, but who knows what will happen when they are starting to loosen some of the restrictions...
Domestic figure skating events are still not allowed... Still wondering if the National Championship will go ahead in March. Borders btw have been closed for non-residentals in Norway. More and more countries are closing the borders for countries which has spread of the mutation, both Finland and Sweden have closed the borders to Norway because of the mutation.... and other countries are starting to follow.
WC is not cancelled yet, Sondre needs the collect the minimums for FS, chances seems really slim now. I know there are some few international events maybe going ahead... but I don´t think it will be possible. And if Swedens continues to close the borders to Norway he won´t even be allowed inside!
Selfish, but I would really want WC in Stockholm to be postponed or cancelled if Sondre can´t go. I think it´s a really important arena for him to get to experience the WC, as it´s so close to Oslo. There won´t be audience anyway now, but it´s so heart breaking to think about that if it hadn´t been for Covid-19, he might have qualified for WC in Stockholm, and he could have debuted in front of a small Norwegian crowd of family and friends.
Thank you for sharing this! I wasn't following Sondre's Insta before, bit now I am.
His family has really good vibes indeedI can´t wait for the sunset video. It´s going to be breathtaking
I´m also in love with his family, how lovely to spend the sunday skating on the frozen lake with the sunset. It sounds so idyllic.
Thank you for the links, I missed the video with Frida and Sondre. It was a fun video!His family has really good vibes indeed
(His brother wasn't with them – I wonder if he can skate too?)
