The European Canoe Championships are cancelled in June due to the risks caused by the pandemic
The German Canoe Federation (DKV) has cancelled, together with the Duisburg Canoe Club, the European Championships scheduled for early June. DKV President Thomas Konietzko informed the presidents of the European Canoe Association, Albert Woods, of this decision over the weekend. The background was a communication from the corona crisis staff of the city of Duisburg. It states that: “Such an event is unlikely to be approvable even in June.”
