According to the German Press Agency, Alpine Ski World Cup races in China next month are likely to be scrapped due to the spread of the deadly coronavirus. International Ski Federation (FIS) is likely to take a final decision on whether to go ahead with the races in Yanqing on Feb. 15 and 16 on Wednesday.
The cancellation of the races would be a blow to FIS and the Chinese organizers who are using the races to test facilities for the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022. According to the Austrian news agency (APA), the two ski races could be held on Saalbach-Hinterglemm in Austria. Most of the teams are believed to be against holding the Yanqing races in China.
