After the increase in COVID-19 cases, World Skate decided to postpone the World Championship for the safety of all athletes and the general public.
Cartagena de Indias and Arjona in Colombia will host all athletes for the World Juniors and Seniors Speed Championship from September 12th to September 19th 2020.
This decision to postpone the event was made between the organization and WorldSkate due to uncertainty and increased travel restrictions.
WorldSkate thus determined the provisional calendar:
- September 11 technical meeting
- Track: September 12th to September 14th
- Rest day 15 September
- Road: September 16 to September 18
- Marathon: September 19
As time progresses, WorldSkate will continue to monitor the situation of virús COVID-19 and further changes may occur due to Colombia’s internal policies as well as travel restrictions.
