The year 2022 has officially started – now also from a sporting point of view. The sport-eXXpress reports back with the Christmas break. This year there are some highlights on the program with the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing and the World Championship. Speaking of Beijing: Dominik Hana met the Secretary General of the Austrian Olympic Committee Peter Mennel and talked to him about the sporting year 2021 and the Winter Games in Beijing. The countdown is on – the Winter Olympics in China will officially start in a month. There are already indications in advance that the Corona situation will not make it easy to play.
Marco Pewal will also be a guest. Dominik Hana will work with the U20 ice hockey team manager on the World Cup in Canada, which ended early. For Austria’s U20 national ice hockey team, the second appearance at the World Cup in Edmonton was also the last. On the day after the 2:11 loss to fellow favorites Canada, the international federation (IIHF) decided to end the tournament prematurely. The corona virus thwarted the organizers. According to defending champions USA, the teams from the Czech Republic and Russia also had to go into quarantine on Wednesday before the cancellation took place.
It starts at 8.15 p.m. – be sure to switch it on!
