Peter Schlickenrieder, coach of the German cross-country skiing team, believes that the World Cup events in the 2022/23 season could be canceled due to the energy crisis in Europe.

The energy crisis and energy prices don't allow the organizers to produce much snow. And snow is an important foundation for us. We will see the cancellation of competitions where organizers decide not to produce snow.

The International Ski Federation (FIS) has decided to suspend Russian skiers and snowboarders from competing in the 2022/23 season.

On February 28, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended that sports federations bar Russian athletes from competing. Earlier, the committee called on the international federations to postpone or cancel all tournaments that were to take place in Russia.
