It is now allowed to train in the Kirchberg sports center. But, for now, the measure only concerns the best athletes and under strict safety conditions.

(pj with David Thinnes) Since March 14, the Hull was very silent. Plus an athlete, professional or amateur, authorized in the enclosure. But that will change following the decision taken in the government council on Wednesday. According to the recommendations of the Luxembourg National Olympic Committee (COSL), training will be able to resume inside the National Sports Center.

It has been a few days since the president of COSL, André Hoffmann, addressed this request to the Prime Minister and his Minister for Sports, Dan Kersch (LSAP). Here it is approved but only for high level athletes, it should be specified.

Not the judokas yet

For Alwin de Prins, director of the Luxembourg Institute for High Sports Performance (LIHPS), this is “an extremely important step for competitive sport”. And to continue: “The attraction of home training lasts only a time. The athletes were able to survive this pace with an extra dose of motivation. But at some point, they are mentally exhausted and have to question themselves.


Director of the virology service of the National Health Laboratory, Dr Trung Nguyen believes that there will be priorities to be respected at the time of deconfinement. Sport will come after health and the economy.


But the former swimmer stresses that not all disciplines will be able to find the facilities of the Kirchberg on May 4. Martial arts, for example, will have to be patient. And that even if for his part the director of the National Center, Christian Jung, declares that the final details are still being prepared. From the beginning of next week, he will know more about the right way to manage rooms, tracks, pools and other equipment.

Thursday morning, by videoconference, the Health and Sports Committee will meet with the sole subject to be discussed with Dan Kersch, the exit strategy of deconfinement for sportspeople, young and old and of all disciplines. Some have ants in their legs?
