BEIJING (Reuters) – Canadian figure skater Keegan Messing has been cleared to travel to Beijing for the Winter Games and is due to land on Monday morning after he had been delayed awaiting results of his COVID-19 tests, the Canadian Olympic Committee said.

The 30-year-old, who finished 12th at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games, is the Canadian national champion and was unable to compete in the team event that started on Friday.

The men’s individual singles event begin on Feb. 8.
