Several Asian Meets including 2021 Asian Athletics Championships Cancelled Due to COVID-19

The 2021 Asian Athletics Championships in China have been canceled.

This goes with the Asian Indoor and Martial art Games being postponed to next year and Asian Beach Games being postponed to next year. Aswell as that, the Asian Race Walking Championships have also been canceled.

It brings into question the likelihood of the 2021 Olympics pushing through or taking place with no live audiences.

What about the 2021 SEA Games? will it take place in fewer countries?

Will, the Philippines National Open, push through at the end of March? or will it be postponed to later in the year?

Are Virtual Meets the ‘WAY OF THE FUTURE’

Are we safe to meet for the first half of 2021 in the Philippines?

When and will PATAFA proposed training bubble happen, if it will happen at all?

Has the centralized system of the UAAP Collapsed, failing to cope with THE NEW NORMAL!

 

At the meeting, the following decisions were made;

1.         Council confirmed the Minutes of the 94th Meeting of the Council held on 28th May 2020 via Zoom.
