The following communication has been received today from the E&A Bureau.
“It is with great regret that due to the COVID-19 crisis and the restrictions imposed by various countries and travel restrictions, the Admincom has decided to cancel or postpone to 2021 all 2020 E&A Titled Events.
All 2020 ‘Open’ and ‘Masters’ (35+, seniors, ..) Championships have been cancelled.
For the Youth Championships, the Admincom encourages the Divisional Councils to postpone their 2020 event to 2021.
If they accept this recommendation, the 2020 event would be held alongside the 2021 event.
This is in order that a youth athlete who is in the last year of his age category does not miss the chance to win a title, a medal or a spot in the finals.
Someone over age can however not set a record for his age category.
It is up to each Council to work out the specific rules for their combined 2020/2021 event.
