Following growing concern and travel restrictions imposed by the global outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus, April's events in China have been officially suspended.
The global effort to contain the Novel Coronavirus outbreak continues to impose an ever evolving series of health risks and travel restrictions around the world. With growing concern over these medical risks for visiting teams, with travel restrictions in mind and after having carefully evaluated the situation, World Skate has decided to suspend April's Olympic Qualification events in China, excluding Street League Skateboarding World Tour (Beijing).
This provision applies to the following events:
• International Skateboarding Open of Street & Park (Yancheng) currently scheduled from the 13th to 19th of April 2020
• International Skateboarding Open of Street (Nanjing-Lishui) already suspended as of February 14th 2020
While we will continue to diligently monitor the situation, this provision currently does not apply to May's events scheduled in China, including:
• Street League Skateboarding World Tour (Beijing) scheduled from the 28th of April to the 3rd of May
• Park World Championships 2020 (Nanjing-Lishui) scheduled from the 25th to the 31st of May 2020
Comprehensive information and rescheduling of the suspended events will be announced as soon as more information is available.
