Dear NPC Representatives,
We hope this email finds you and your families well.
We are contacting you to inform you that despite all efforts made by the Local Organising Committee, WPS Management team and classifiers, the classification opportunity at Polish Open Para Swimming Championships will be cancelled.
Unfortunately, further spread out of Covid-19 virus worldwide and especially in Europe has increased the travel restrictions, and therefore has interrupted the further planning and realisation of this classification opportunity.
Please note that the nations still wishing to compete without classification they can submit their entries in the IPC online system by 5 October. We would also like to ask the nations to remove the entries from the system in case they would like to cancel their participation. For any further information in regards to booking forms, please contact directly the LOC in the below email addresses.
We would like to thank you all for your kind assistance in application process and for your continuous support and understanding in these challenging times.
The WPS considers the health and well-being of all involved in sport, including athletes, staff and volunteers, and spectators to be of paramount importance. We are committed to continue planning an organising classification opportunities where possible.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We have to wait another year for such a great and exciting competition. Smiling athletes from Spain and Netherlands, full of energy representants of Iraq.
