IWA STATEMENT REGARDING THE RUSSIAN INVASION OF UKRAINE
Posted On: 28/02/2022 07:56:46
Windsurf is a concrete instrument of freedom. With a windsurf our people escaped from east Germany and Cuba . We condemn the unprovoked Russian invasion and support the Ukrainian people.
The IWA reminds that the main sports role is to educate youth on the need to respect others liberty and independence and to tolerate diversity.
The IWA will indefinitely not be sanctioning championships to be held in Russia. We believe a government can only survive if it enjoys considerable support from its people and have therefore reached out to World Sailing in order to approve a ban for all Russian athletes to international IWA sanctioned events.
UPDATE - IOC recommends no participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes and officials
