The 2021 World Luge Championships will not be held in Whistler, Canada, according to the website of the International Luge Federation (FIL).
The competition was scheduled to take place on February 5-7. The FIL Executive Committee will decide on an alternative venue for the World Cup in the coming weeks.
The decision to move the world championship from Canada is due to continuing restrictions on international communications in the country due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to Tim Farstad, Executive Director of the Canadian Luge Association, the Federation cannot guarantee that the 14-day quarantine for athletes entering the country will be lifted until February 2021.
