Following on from the members email sent.
An extract from Kurt Kaschke, the President’s statement.
” The Ministry of Health recommended to postpone events with many people indoors and outdoors. The City responsible of Braga and the LOC came to the conclusion to postpone the Championships because of the high risk. They will send me in the next few hours the official statement of the City Council. EMA Council has to respect the decision because it is not in our hands to decide differently. We asked them to give us a chance and have an alternative date. This will be proposed as well. This will be published on our social media and send every single athlete the statement.”
Events are being cancelled all around Europe especially where people are coming from many different countries.so this is not surprising. Madeira is a totally different municipality and will make its own decision in due course.
The official statement of the Braga municipality is no longer on the EMA website.
