Jarl Magnus Riiber Wiki, Age, Career Explored, Net Worth

It’s the biggest fear of every athlete at the Winter Olympics: you arrive in Beijing for the pinnacle of your sporting career, only to test positive for Covid-19 and be whisked away to an isolation facility.

That was the case for Norway’s Jarl Magnus Riiber, who competes in the Nordic combined and won a silver medal in the men’s team event at the 2018 Games.

The 24-year-old Riiber resorted to running laps of the room he was confined to in order to stay in shape as he held out hopes of still competing in Beijing. To do so, he would need to produce two negative PCR tests 24 hours apart.

“I hope for a miracle. It destroys a lot because you have tuned your shape so much into this event,” Riiber told CNN’s Selina Wang.

He’s one of a number of people whose Olympics have been derailed by Covid-19 – either before or after arriving in Beijing.
