World Cup 2020: Olga Zabelinskaya tested positive for coronavirus

The first positive corona test during the World Cycling Championships is a fact. Olga Zabelinskaya, who comes from Uzbekistan, is now isolated. The 40-year-old rider shows no symptoms or signs of illness.
Zabelinskaya was scheduled to participate in the World Time Trial Championship on Thursday, but did not start at the last minute. The experienced racer, who decided to give up her Russian nationality two years ago, is racing for the modest Cogeas-Mettler Pro Cycling Team this season.
Zabelinskaya will therefore not participate in the road race in Imola, Italy on Saturday. Yesterday Anna van der Breggen won her first world title in the time trial, by referring Marlen Reusser and Ellen van Dijk to the silver and bronze.
