Professional cyclist Geschke closes quarantine: "Not going so well


00.15 a.m.: Professional

cyclist Simon Geschke puts the corona quarantine at the Olympic Games not only mentally, but also physically.

“I am not doing so well now, especially physically, and I don't think it's because of Covid-19.

Above all, my back hurts from lying in bed a lot.

I also lack sunlight, I lack movement, I lack fresh air, we are not even allowed to open the windows here, "said Geschke in an interview with the" Süddeutsche Zeitung ".

The 35-year-old veteran tested positive before the Olympic road race and has been isolated in Tokyo since then.

His return to Germany will take place on Sunday at the earliest, subject to negative corona tests.

Official on the track: Crash during BMX training


A nasty-looking accident on the Olympic BMX track in Tokyo's Ariake Urban Sports Park apparently turned out halfway lightly.

During practice, the Dutch driver Niek Kimmann rushed at full speed into an official who wanted to cross the course in a depression in the straight.

Kimmann published a video of the incident on Instagram.

“I hope he's fine.

My knee hurts, but I hope I'm ready for Thursday, "wrote the European champion from 2019. Then the 25-year-old wants to compete in the preliminary quarter-finals, provided his injury does not worsen.
