Johannes Klebo has joined the Norwegian national team for the first stage of the World Cup, which will be held in Ruka, Finland, according to the website of the Norwegian Ski Federation.
In early November, the 27-year-old reported that Klebo had contracted the coronavirus, despite recently living in isolation in the Alps with his father and manager Haakon Klebo.
Earlier it was reported that the Norwegian federation plans to reduce the number of national team skiers due to the difficult financial situation. Klebo refused a place on the team so that the federation had the opportunity to spend money on other athletes.
On October 13, Klebo agreed to play for the Norwegian national team again and put the logo of the team sponsor on the uniform.
In addition to Klebo, the Norwegian men’s team for the first stage of the MIA Cup included Harald Amundsen, Erik Wahlnes, Paul Gulberg, Emil Iversen, Matz William Jensen, Simen Hegstad Kruger, Martin Löwström Nyenge, Petter Northug, Schür Rete, Håvard Sulos Taugbel, Iver Tilheim Andersen and Ansgar Evensen.
