ÍSF tekur undir við at leingja corona-tiltøkini

Allar ítróttagreinar halda steðg, so leingi myndugleikarnir mæla frá, at fólk savnast – t.v.s. í øllum førum til og við 13. apríl

So leingi almennu myndugleikarnir mæla fólki frá at savnast, so leingi stendur steðgurin í føroyska ítróttaheiminum við. Ítróttasamband Føroya leggur dent á, at øll feløg og sambond innan ÍSF virða seinastu almennu tilráðingarnar.

Tað merkir, at venjingar, dystir, kappingar og annars øll ítróttatiltøk – bæði innandura og uttandura – í øllum deildum og aldursbólkum halda steðg í øllum førum til og við 13. apríl, sum er seinasta tilráðingin frá almennu myndugleikunum.

– Nú eigur eingin at slaka. Vit taka framvegis ábyrgd og vilja vera við til at skerja smittuvandan. Støðan skal framvegis takast í størsta álvara. Samfelagssinni er framvegis lyklaorðið her, sigur Elin Heðinsdóttir Joensen, ÍSF-forseti.

IOC umhugsar at útseta OL 2020

IOC-forsetin Thomas Bach skrivaði í brævi í gjár til alheims íðkarar, at tað kann koma uppá tal at útseta OL 2020 í Tokyo, men at tað eisini er sera trupult.

So, like you, we are in a dilemma: Cancellation of the Olympic Games would destroy the Olympic dream of 11,000 athletes from all 206 National Olympic Committees, from the IOC Refugee Olympic Team, most likely for the Paralympic athletes, and for all the people who are supporting you as coaches, doctors, officials, training partners, friends and family. Cancellation would not solve any problem and would help nobody. Therefore it is not on our agenda.

A decision about a postponement today could not determine a new date for the Olympic Games because of the uncertain developments in both directions: an improvement, as we are seeing in a number of countries thanks to the severe measures being taken, or a deteriorating situation in other countries.

Contrary to other sports events, to postpone the Olympic Games is an extremely complex challenge. Just to give you some examples:

A number of critical venues needed for the Games could potentially not be available anymore. The situations with millions of nights already booked in hotels is extremely difficult to handle, and the international sports calendar for at least 33 Olympic sports would have to be adapted. These are just a few of many, many more challenges.

Tey ætlaðu tá at brúka næstu fýra vikurnar uppá at viðgera eina møguliga útseting; men tann avgerðin verður væl møguliga framskundað, um lond nú fella frá í stórum.

Avstralia sendir heldur ongan til ætlaða OL 2020 vegna COVID-2019

Lesið her á olympics.com.au

The AOC held an Executive Board meeting via teleconference this morning and unanimously agreed that an Australian Team could not be assembled in the changing circumstances at home and abroad.

AOC Chief Executive Matt Carroll says athletes have needed certainty – they wanted to do the right thing for themselves, their families and the world community.

“We have athletes based overseas, training at central locations around Australia as teams and managing their own programs. With travel and other restrictions this becomes an untenable situation.

“The IOC had adopted the key principles of putting athlete health first and ensuring it acted in their best interests and the interests of sport. This decision reflects those principles.

“We are now in a position where we can plan with greater certainty.”

Avstralska svimjisambandið stuðla avgerðini, og hava niðurlagt sína úrvalssskipan nú støðan er sum hon er.

Following the government’s most recent advice and further restrictions being imposed across the country, and after consultation with high performance coaches, Russell said Swimming Australia’s high performance programs would also immediately shut down.

“It is clear that to stop the spread of COVID-19 we must all follow government advice and practice physical distancing,” Russell said.

“In light of all non-essential services being shut down we will suspend all of our Olympic and Paralympic training programs for the foreseeable future.

“The safety and health of our athletes, coaches, staff, their families and our community, is paramount at the moment.”
