Tazlina Mannix is not scheduled to race in the sprint qualifiers today.
The team sprint has officially been cancelled. There is still a chance that Mannix will race in tomorrow’s 10 K classic distance race if tempteratures permit. The official race website is continually updated as the cold temperatures hamper the competition.
