The Covid-19 pandemic forces the EU-funded BRIDGES project into the digital world
In these weeks of forced closure by Covid-19, the European project BRIDGES also had to stop its public events
Corona Virus COVID-19 is malfunctioning our society and also our sports-program for 2020 heavily!
The worldwide Corona Covid-19 pandemic forces many organizers to reschedule or cancel
Due to the prevailing global Corona Covid-19 pandemic, the CSIT ExCom meeting was held online
Dear Friends, CSIT Member Unions, CSIT Athletes and Supporters,
CSIT President Bruno Molea received a high Award from the Italian Paralympic Committee
In 2020 CSIT Members will again have a number of events and official championships on international level.
At this moment Europe and North America is suffering of the spread of the Corona Covid-19 virus. Central/South America is a bit behind, but unfortunately will follow soon.
The CSIT Executive Committee is more and more worrying about the health of our athletes and the success of our championships. We are standing for the health of our athletes and not sending them around the globe, where they can get infected by COVID-19. Therefore we have now decided together with the organziers of CSIT events to postpone three of our planned Single-Championships.
We have taken the decision to postpone the CSIT Beachvolleyball Championships in Acapulco / MEX (30.06.2020 until 06.07.2020) to a later date, with view to the COVID-19 Pandemic development (late 2020 or 2022), and to cancel together with the Finnish host TUL the CSIT Tennis Championships in Pajulahti / FIN (26.07.2020 until 01.08.2020) as well as the CSIT Swimming Championships in Oulu / FIN (26.-30.08.2020).
Further events are still planned for the autumn 2020 in Chess, Sailing and Gymnastics, but are under observation!
Anything else would be irresponsible at the moment, but simultaneously we are very sorry about this development. Further decisions will follow continuously about next steps (postponement, cancellation), and we kindly ask you also to inform all meanwhile registered participants.
On behalf of CSIT President Bruno Molea and the Executive Committee, we would like to thank you for your understanding.
