The 2022 World Rowing Indoor Championships presented by Concept2 will be conducted virtually.
The announcement—which comes amidst rising virus levels in the United States combined with the uncertainty of a new variant—is not entirely surprising.
“With the uncertainty caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including new virus variants, potential lockdowns, and uncertainty in international travel, the Hamburg Organising Committee and the World Rowing Executive Committee have come to the conclusion after a detailed exchange to convert the 2022 World Rowing Indoor Championships to a virtual only event,” World Rowing announced.
The event was originally scheduled to take place February 25-26 in Hamburg, Germany.
Those currently entered in the event will have two options to alter their entries—join the virtual competition or get a refund.
The virtual qualification period closes February 2.
