    A swathe of Covid-19 infections is threatening the skiing World Cup season in Europe

    A swathe of Covid-19 infections is threatening the skiing World Cup season in Europe


    Alice Robinson is one of a number of athletes who has the virus - she was forced out of the super G in France overnight and is almost certain to miss this week's giant slalom races.

    Snow Sports New Zealand boss Nic Cavanagh admits there's uncertainty.



    Robinson is asymptomatic and hopes to return in a World Cup giant slalom before the end of the year in Austria.
