A meno di 24 ore dalla cancellazione dei Campionati Europei di Triathlon di Tartu, dalla European Triathlon Union arriva la notizia dell'annullamento dei Campionati Europei di Cross Triathlon e Cross Duathlon di Targu Mures, in Romania, previsti dal 12 al 15 settembre.
A causa della continua e costante diffusione del Covid-19, oltre alla rassegna continentale per gli specialisti delle ruote grasse, la ETU ha comunicato la cancellazione degli eventi ETU Triathlon Youth European Championships Festival e ITU Paratriathlon World Cup di Alanya (Turchia), ETU Cup di Constanta (Romania) e Junior European Cup di Tiszaujvaros (Ungheria).
ETU announce more event cancellations due to the Corona Virus Pandemic
Unfortunately, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still making it difficult to host events and provide fair racing for both the athletes and coaches involved due to travel restrictions. There is no way to ensure the presence of all competitors and fair racing circumstances. Therefore, in conjunction with the National Federations and LOCs, it has been jointly decided that the following events will be cancelled: ● Târgu Mures Romania Cross Triathlon and Cross Duathlon Championships scheduled for September ● Alanya ETU Triathlon Youth European Championships Festival and ITU Paratriathlon World Cup ● Constanta, Romania ETU Cup ● Tiszaujvaros Junior European Cup The increased level of infections and travel restrictions result in unfair racing circumstances. This decision has been made now to avoid the event being cancelled closer to the date. The organizers of Târgu Mures Viktor Klosz said the following about the cancellation of the event; “It was really hard to cancel after all these months full of hope, but we think that it's better this way, we guess that we all agree on the fact that safety comes first!” As for the cancellations of Alanya, the representative from the Turkish Triathlon Federation Onur Aydemir..... said; "even though we wanted to organise the race, we are very disappointed to announce that we had to cancel Alanya due to COVID-19. Next year we hope to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Alanya by hosting all the events we had planned for 2020.”
