Statement: 2020 European Championships

The Consultation Group shaping the GB Judo’s Return to International Competition Risk Assessment recently met to discuss ongoing concerns around the Great Britain Delegation attending the 2020 Senior European Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.

Following long and difficult discussions, it was unanimously agreed that due to the ongoing high risk concerns around the Coronavirus Pandemic in the UK, in Europe, and specifically, in the Czech Republic, British Judo have unfortunately taken the very difficult decision to withdraw the whole of the Great Britain Delegation from the 2020 Senior European Championships, with immediate effect.

Rest assured, this decision was not taken lightly, however as previously communicated, the health and safety of our team members and their families is paramount.
