Decision to cancel the 2020 European Athletics Championships due to “Corona” virus.
The European Athletics 2020 Championships, which were to be launched in Paris at the end of August, will be canceled due to the Corona virus, according to organizers.
The European Athletics Federation said in a statement: “The decision to cancel the tournament was driven by the Corona virus pandemic and the risks associated with the current situation, which is still out of control, as well as the ban currently imposed on rallies in France.”
He added that the decision was partially influenced by the advice of the Medical Committee of the French Athletics Federation after evaluating the potential risks to the fans and officials.
The tournament was scheduled for August 25-30.
“We had hoped, in these difficult circumstances, to give the European athletics competitors a big event for which they were preparing for the end of the summer,” said Dubrovir Karamarinov, interim president of the European Athletics Federation.
