IPC statement concerning the Paralympic Games 2020.

22 March 2020

Dear affiliates!

Recently, Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), informed me that the IOC today (March 22) has begun a four-week addressing the issue of a possible rescheduling of the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The decision was made by the IOC Executive Board after an emergency meeting, which ended recently.

A group of key partners, including the IPC, will assess the current health situation and its impact on the Games, including a potential transfer scenario. I assure you that the cancellation of the Games is not considered.

As soon as I have more information, I will share it with you.




The president

International Paralympic Committee                                                                                        Andrew Parsons
