The Organizing Committee Events in Cogne, the community of Cogne and the entire Aosta Valley acknowledge, with displeasure, the communication sent by the WMA concerning the cancellation of the World Masters Championships scheduled in Cogne from 5 to 13 March 2020.
Ready for the event and excited to welcome more than 1000 ski lovers from all over the world, the organizers feel an offended part of this unilateral decision.
Aosta Valley is still free from any form of Contagion from Coronavirus and the La Thuile World Cup races are currently underway under the auspices of the FIS are proof of this.
Considering the proximity to the beginning of the event, in the awareness of the exceptional and unpredictable nature of the situation, we underline the significant financial damage which will be difficult to recover. The CO can therefore only take note, although with great regret, of the unilateral position of the World Master Association.
