Junior World Championships Cancelled

The IWF has announced that the Junior World Championships have been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The competition was due to be held in Bucharest, Romania starting on 14th March.

The competition would have been a gold-level Olympic qualification event, so the cancellation may dent the qualification hopes of some junior athletes.

A competition of this level being cancelled raises the possibility that the continental championships in April or even the Olympics in July could be under threat if coronavirus continues to be a threat.
