World champs relocated


Snowboardi­ng: The world championsh­ips were yesterday moved from China to the United States because of Covid19 travel restrictio­ns.

The Internatio­nal Ski Federation said Aspen will stage slopestyle, halfpipe and big air events from March 8 to 16. Zhangjiaku­o had been scheduled to host the event from February 18 to 28.

The Colorado resort will also now host four World Cup events — two each in snowboard and freeski — after the worlds. — AP
