Team sports, competitions, and all organized activities are suspended from October 8 until October 28 in the Quebec province in Canada. After the first lockdown this spring, the synchro teams are, therefore, once again kept away from the ice and their training.
"Only activities carried out in free practice will be allowed on an individual basis or in pairs" [pers. translation] the statement said. Sports facilities may remain open; however, the two-meter distance must be respected at all times. These new measures apply to the red zones of the province.
Some synchro teams had also deployed very good ideas (such as fly swatters and massage rollers) during their practice on ice to overcome the inability to hold each other. In addition, synchro skaters had widely adopted the mask.
"We are convinced that our members will adhere to the 28-day challenge to break the wave of the virus spreading quickly to return to the ice. Following this 28-day challenge, the situation will be reassessed regarding the restrictions imposed", continued the federation.
