ISC Plans for August Mondial Despite Ongoing Challenges

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

At its January meeting, the International Skydiving Commission of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (world skydiving’s governing body), continued its discussions regarding the fate of the 2020 (rescheduled to 2021) World Skydiving Championships Mondial in Russia in August. Although two major challenges—international travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic and World Anti-Doping Agency sanctions on the host country—are creating a measure of uncertainty, the ISC is actively working to hold the event as scheduled. The ISC will make its final determination in regard to COVID restrictions in April. In the meantime, the FAI is presenting a case to WADA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport that asks for exceptions to allow Russia to host the event since finding a new venue at this time is nearly impossible. The ISC will await confirmation from WADA on whether the Mondial can proceed, and USPA will alert competitors as soon as a determination occurs.
