Multiple Masters International Meets Cancelled or Postponed Due to COVID-19


A few major competitions for international masters swimmers have been cancelled or postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

While vaccines are being distributed worldwide, event organizers globally are still trying to figure out how events with massive participant numbers can be held safely for both the competitors and the local communities they’re competing in. This follows in the wake of scheduling issues and cancellations for multiple Olympic qualifiers recently.

The 2021 European Masters Championships have been canceled, with the swimming portion of the meet supposed to run at the end of May in Budapest. The meet was originally going to be held in 2020, but was moved to 2021 due to COVID-19, and it’s now been canceled altogether.

The UANA Pan American Masters Championships have been postponed, not canceled, pushed to July 21-28 of 2022 in Medellin, Colombia. They were initially slated for May 2021.

Meanwhile, the 2022 FINA World Masters Championships is going to be split into three different sites. The meet will function out of Fukuoka, Kumamoto and Kagoshima in Japan between May 31 and June 9, 2022. Like the UANA Pan Am Masters, the meet was originally set for 2021 but will now be pushed an entire year.
