Harley has a wrist injury so even if he has a partner, no Worlds for them this season (info was in the Aussie thread last month). Their dancers who were on the Worlds team last year train in Canada (I think IAM but not positive) so it shouldn't be an issue for them to go. Not sure where Kailani is based right now.Are any of the likely Worlds participants in Australia rn? Kerry and Windsor aren't. Not sure whether Windsor has a partner yet or not. I wonder if some of the North American teams might head to Europe or Sweden early so as to be closer and not trying to fly in at the last minute. Not sure if that's actually any easier or not.
I wonder if it has anything to do with trying to stop the spread of the UK variant. I don't think it's that the team has been "banned" but simply that the Netherlands is not allowing entry to anyone from GB at this time, not even high-performance athlete exemptions, which is a real shame.Canadian short track team picked and ready to go. Our current rates of infection are similar to GB as theirs greatly improved since their lockdown and USA much worse, have other teams been banned? Seems odd to me? Just present a negative test?
