He must have responded well, tournament manager Vidar Hilmen told Valdres newspaper.
It didn’t seem like we would be able to save his life, so it was a tough blow, Hilmen added.
According to reports, the player who collapsed suddenly was a senior player for the team Vest-Torpa.
In light of recent events, Beitostlen Cup has been postponed for the rest of this weekend.
