It is with great sadness that after some weeks of deliberation, the Icelandic LOC and the board of the Icelandic Gymnastics has decided that Eurogym & European Gym for Life Challenge has to be cancelled.
The uncertainty is tremendous, and there are numerous issues regarding planning and implementation that are impossible to manage when a global pandemic is part of our daily life.
The event would have to follow strict rules regarding social distancing and disinfection guidelines. That would not be a successful and an enjoyable event for our European youth, because the primary purpose of the event is social engaging and gatherings.
We are deeply disappointed that we did not have the opportunity to host the event in 2020 or 2021. But first and foremost, we want to set a good example and be responsible in uncertain times.
We wish you to stay safe in this world pandemic and hope you understand our decision.
