The World Para Snowboard has sent an information letter about the changes in the competition calendar and classification

09 December 2020

The World Para Snowboard has sent an information letter about the changes in the competition calendar and classification:

Calendar

  • Almasa 2021 WPSB World Cup is cancelled. The Board of NPC Sweden has informed us that no Para snow sports events will be possible in Sweden this winter. The complexity of the situation surrounding our events has played a major role in taking this decision.  As a consequence the event has been removed from the calendar.
  • Pyha 2021 WPSB World Cup: we are still working with the LOC to find the best dates for the event, especially with the cancellation of the event in Sweden. The LOC is still committed that an event will be possible in Pyha.
  • Beijing 2021 WPSB World Cup Final is cancelled. It has been communicated in a separate email that all the Para snow sports Test Events have been cancelled by BOCOG and the respective LOCs. The entry requirements in China have made it impossible for any international participants and therefore the events had to be cancelled. We will continuously communicate with you if there will be any possibility for us to test some of the functional areas.

Classification

  • In the absence of Para snowboard competitions, classifying athletes has become a major challenge. Under these circumstances we have received the necessary approvals to organise Para snowboard classification events out of competition. We would therefore like to inform you that all Para alpine skiing PI classification events will be open for Para snowboard athletes. All opportunities can be found under the current link: https://www.paralympic.org/alpine-skiing/events
  • Please note that in order to participate in the above mentioned classification events, all participants must comply with all the Covid-19 Protocols that apply for that particular event. If you wish to register any of your athletes for the classification events, please get back to as soon as possible.
  • Please also note that in the absence of an Observation opportunity, all athletes that might require Observation Assessment will be automatically given a Review status and must present themselves at the next classification opportunity where Observation will be possible.

Office

  • WPSB office team is extending. After the announcement of the new Race Directors team, we would like to use this opportunity and welcome Michael Gangwisch to the world of Para snow sports. Michael has a Master’s degree in Sports Management and is excited to be focusing his attention on Para snowboard and Para alpine skiing.
