Following the yesterday’s Board of Directors and several meetings among the event’s organisers in the previous days, we are sorry to comunicate that WRF is forced to postpone the Asian Championship. The race was supposed to be held from 16th to 23rd September 2022 in Himachal Pradesh state, in the northern India.
Heavy rain during the last week has caused havoc. As many as 22 people have lost their lives in floods, rockslides and landslides, with at least 6 people missing and 10 injured.
Due to the natural disaster the dates of the competition have been delayed and will be discussed with the organisation and the Board in the upcoming days.
“We are truly sorry for the local struggle and pay our respect to the families involved in the disaster. I am sure our athletes will comprehend the situation. President of the Indian Rafting Foundation Shaukat Sikand did everything he could in order to help the organisation of the race, but we will compete in India once the emergency is over, wishing the local people to return to comfortable and safe conditions as soon as possible” WRF President Danilo Barmaz declared.
