Considerata la situazione incredibile provocata dal governo russo ai danni dell’Ucraina, il board della IFSC ha deciso di annullare la tappa di Copa del Mondo boulder e speed in programma a Mosca.
La Federazione esprime giustamente tutta la solidarietà possibile al popolo ucraino e auspica una pacifica risoluzione della assurda situazione attuale. Ecco il comunicato della Federazione internazionale:
Following a series of consultative meetings with different stakeholders today, the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) decided to suspend the IFSC Boulder and Speed World Cup scheduled for 1 to 3 April 2022 in Moscow.
The decision was taken following consultation with and approval of the IFSC Athletes’ Commission.
IFSC President Marco Scolaris held several meetings today. During his discussion with the Ukrainian Mountaineering and Climbing Federation (UMF), he expressed the solidarity of the IFSC and the entire Climbing community with the people of Ukraine during this unprecedented crisis. President Scolaris added that he hoped the conflict in Ukraine would end quickly and peacefully without any further violence.
