Alone and in the open air, key words of deconfined sport
Paris (AFP) - What sports to practice from Monday and how? Deconfinement will give joggers and cyclists air, but it will be necessary to be patient or to be inventive for team or contact sports.
The Ministry of Sports is to publish several guides this weekend to detail the conditions of practice, for amateurs and high-level athletes, who could benefit from a derogation to train again indoors.
- Keep your distance
No more mandatory certification, no more limit of one hour and one kilometer for each outing: the horizon for joggers widens from Monday, while cyclists will be able to ride freely, and no longer only to get to work.
If any gathering is limited to ten people, it is still better to practice these two activities individually.The Ministry of Sports has decreed "a minimum distance of ten meters between two people" who are running or cycling, distance which passes five meters for brisk walking, so a hike is a priori possible in authorized areas, less than 100 km from home.
For static activities, such as fitness or yoga, allow 4 m2 of space per person, always in the open air and with less than ten practitioners.
At first, team sports or combat, which involve contact, remain proscribed.At the Ministry of Sports, it is explained that it is necessary to adapt the practice and find a way to respect distances and barrier gestures.
Yes to passes, with the ball at the foot, but no five-a-side football matches between friends.The door remains closed to judo, karate or any other martial art, as well as boxing, face-to-face.But a boxing teacher can still take a handful of practitioners to the park, if it has reopened, to jump rope and practice the right thing.
