Australian alpine skier Katie Parker is free to make her Olympic debut after consecutive COVID-19 PCR test results came in negative overnight.

Parker will compete in the Women’s Slalom with the first runs starting at 11.50am Beijing time and a second run this afternoon at 3.40pm.

Her delayed departure from the United States due to ongoing positive tests resulted in her name coming off the starters list for Monday’s Giant Slalom.

However, after returning the required negative tests for travel, she boarded the plane hopeful of making the Women’s Slalom competition.

Parker spent the night in a hotel in Zhangjiakou after arriving at Beijing Airport yesterday where she returned a positive test.

Australian Olympic Team Chef de Mission Geoff Lipshut said it was a huge relief for Parker and the entire Olympic squad.
