18th ISF Gymnasiade Jinjiang 2020 Cancelled
We would like to inform you that following joint discussions with all parties concerned, the decision has been taken to cancel the 18th ISF Gymnasiade (School Summer Games) - Jinjiang 2020, which was scheduled to be held in Jinjiang, China’s Fujian province from 26 November to 3 December 2022.
Since Jinjiang won the hosting rights for the 18th Gymnasiade in October 2017, all organising parties have maintained active communication and collaboration, and requirements for hosting the event have basically been met. However, in light of the current global COVID-19 pandemic and opinions of ISF members, we believe that it is imperative for us to place high priority on the safety of young generations of student athletes and all participants. Hence, we regret to inform you that the event will be cancelled.
We would like to extend our appreciation to all of you for your continuing cooperation, and to express our thanks to China School Sports Federation and the Executive Committee of the 18th Gymnasiade for all the efforts they have made. We sincerely hope to continue to strengthen our cooperation with China School Sports Federation and Jinjiang in the future, and work together to promote the further development of youth sports and cultural exchanges around the world.
Thank you again for your understanding and support.
