So far, novel coronavirus pneumonia has been postponed or cancelled, including many matches including Lingshui and Germany. Referring to whether more competitions will be cancelled, the world badminton federation said that unless the countrys public health department gives instructions not to hold the competition, the competition will be held as scheduled.
The World Badminton Federation has revealed that it has provided guidelines for host countries to help them prepare and ensure that emergency and safety plans are in place in the event of an accident. All hosts are working hard to ensure the health and safety of all competitors.
In response, the world badminton federation said that if super 1000 or super 750 level games are cancelled, players who are forced to participate will not be fined. If the super 500 level event is cancelled, the World Badminton Federation will consider whether it will adjust the rules for the specific players affected by the cancellation according to the specific circumstances.
With the deadline of the Olympic points period approaching, the cancellation of the competition means that the chance for the athletes to obtain Olympic points will be reduced, which will inevitably affect the ownership of the final quota. However, the world badminton federation said it does not intend to make any adjustments to the relevant provisions of the Olympic points qualification.
Any change to the existing Olympic points qualifying rules will have a positive or negative impact on different athletes. According to the current situation of postponement and cancellation, the World Badminton Federation believes that it is inappropriate to make a change. The World Badminton Federation wrote.
