Today the IBSF followed the recommendation of the Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee to postpone the pre-homologation of the National Sliding Center in Yanqing which was set from March 9th to 15th 2020. This decision is based on the outbreak and continuing spread of the Novel Coronavirus which posed unexpected challenges ahead of the Organizing Committee.
All the stakeholders have been doing their utmost to well prepare the pre-homologation but the health and welfare of the athletes and all participants has to be respected.
The IBSF wants to thank the International Luge Federation (FIL) for its close cooperation as well as BOCOG and the IOC for their support and expertise.
The exact date for the pre-homologation will be communicated in due course.
