CPR was performed and they used the hall’s defibrillator to revive the player, and two minutes later, he was breathing again.

He was immediately sent by air ambulance to Ullevål hospital.

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.
