Following the decision on 19 March 2020 to postpone LWC2020 due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, the ILS has discussed alternative solutions with the Italian Lifesaving Federation (FIN) and with the host of the LWC 2022. Both agreed with the proposed plan, which is to move the LWC 2020 to 2022, to keep the LWC 2024 at the Gold Coast, Australia and to plan the LWC 2026 in Agadir, Morocco.
The ILS Board of Directors has now decided by a postal ballot to approve this plan. The LWC 2022 will now take place in Riccione, Italy from 16 September to 2 October 2022.
The reasons for rescheduling LWC 2020 to 2022 and not to 2021 are contained in the attached letter, which also outlines the next steps that will now be taken.
A point of contact for further information is given in the letter.
