OF THE ANOC WORLD BEACH GAMES 2023
News flash from World Rowing
World Rowing deeply regrets the official cancellation of the ANOC World Beach Games Bali 2023, after the Local Organising Committee officially notified ANOC of its decision to withdraw its commitment to host the second edition of the event.
ANOC has made the decision public in an official statement published on 4 July, 2023 which can be found here.
We deeply regret this decision, not only for all the athletes that have trained and raced hard to qualify for the Games and were ready to travel to Bali, but also for the officials and staff that were working for almost a year now for a beach sprint rowing event to be part of the ANOC World Beach Games for the very first time.
World Rowing will now be considering all implications of this cancellation and will liaise directly with ANOC in that regard.
