WSL sagt alle Surf Events für März ab – auch den Start der CT an der Gold Coast

Wie sollte es auch anders sein?! Am Ende ist ein Surfcontest eben auch eine Großveranstaltung wie jede andere, die sich der Pandemie beugen muss.

Gestern gab die WSL bekannt, dass ALLE Tour Events weltweit für März abgesagt werden. Somit trifft es auch das erste Event der 2020 Championship Tour (CT) an der Gold Coast in Australien. Leider wird auch der Papara Pro Open Tahiti und viele andere Contest wegen den Vorfällen abgesagt.

Hier das offizielle Statement des WSL CEO Erik Logan:

“Coronavirus is having massive consequences for sporting events and gatherings of all kinds around the world, and we are no different. We did not take this decision lightly as we are aware that it has a significant impact on the surfing community. However, the health and safety of our athletes, fans, and staff are paramount. From the standpoint of social responsibility, we also take very seriously the role our events might play in accelerating the spread of the virus. We’ve been in close contact with our athletes and we feel strongly that this is the right thing to do right now.”

Unklar ist noch wie lange die Sperre gelten wird und ob Bells Beach auch gestrichen wird.
